WATCH: Tongi Inferno

 
 

Sep 12 2016 (The Daily Star, Bangladesh) – At least 24 people were killed and 74 injured, many critically, in a huge fire triggered by a boiler explosion at plastic packaging factory Tampaco Foils Limited in Tongi industrial area of Gazipur today.

Part of the four-story building collapsed on the impact of the incident, the biggest industrial disaster since 2013 when the Rana Plaza building collapsed.

There were chemical-filled drums mostly kept on the ground floor of the factory, our correspondent reports quoting locals.
