10 N'ganj high-rises at fire risk

Identifies fire dept

Fire service officials yesterday identified 10 high-rises as risky in Narayanganj.

The officials also hung signboards outside the buildings, terming those risky.

“Around 100 high-rises in the city have only one staircase instead of two, no fire extinguishers and insufficient water supply. Some lack sufficient air circulation system. We are hanging signboards outside those buildings,” said Abdullah Al Arefin, deputy director of Fire Service and Civil Defence in Narayanganj.

The drive will continue today as well, he said.

Owners of the risky buildings have been asked to take fire safety measures immediately. Otherwise, legal actions will be taken against them, he added.
