200 shanties gutted in Banani slum fire

At least 200 shanties were damaged when a fire tore through two slums in the capital's Banani T&T area early today.

The fire broke out at Godown Slum and Bede Slum around 3:30am, Rasel Shikder, a duty officer of Fire Service and Civil Defense headquarters, told The Daily Star.

On information, 22 firefighting units rushed to the spot and extinguished the fire around 7:00am.

A four-member committee led by fire service Deputy Director Nur Hossain had been formed to look into the incident and estimate the damage, he said.

It is still unclear what caused the fire.
