A fire broke out in a readymade garments factory in Hazaribagh in the capital this evening, gutting a large shipment of goods.
The fire began around 5:45pm in Green Leaf Apparels, located on the first and second floors of a building in the area.
One man suffered minor injuries inside the fire. He was identified as supervisor Mizan.
An entire shipment of jackets was burnt down, said factory officials.
Ten firefighting units were required to bring the flames under control. The fire service needed at least an hour to declare the situation within control.
Maj Mahbub, director (operations) of Fire Service and Civil Defense, provided the above to our correspondent covering the incident.
However the fire service could not determine the cause of the fire.
