A fire that broke out at Police Plaza in Dhaka’s Gulshan area this morning was doused by locals before fire service could reach the scene.

The fire originated on the third floor of the plaza at 10:06am, sources at Fire Service and Civil Defense Headquarters told The Daily Star.

Locals doused the fire immediately, the sources said. No casualty was reported in the fire.


On Thursday, a fire claimed lives of 26 people and left around 100 injured at the 22-storey FR Tower in Banani.

Two days after the deadly fire, a massive fire swept through the Gulshan-1 DNCC kitchen market burning down over 200 shops yesterday. But no casualty was reported.

When the traders were busy with their gutted shops in the DNCC market, another fire broke out at Delta Life Tower, a high rise at Gulshan-2, in the afternoon but it was doused immediately.

Besides, a fire started in a building at Dhanmondi-11 yesterday evening but it was extinguished before firefighters reached the spot. No damage was reported.
