A fire at a factory in the capital’s Old Dhaka area has destroyed goods worth Tk 1 million.

The fire broke out at the second floor of a house in Nababpur’s Rothkhola More area around 7:30 am on Wednesday.

Fire Service control room officer Shahzadi Sultana said four units of the fire service department tamed the blaze within half an hour.

The factory used to produce imprints and designs for children’s clothes and shoes, said the owners, ‘Rashid’ and ‘Abul’.

Rashid said no one was hurt since the factory was empty at night.

“Goods worth about Tk 1 million have been destroyed,” he said.

Fire service officials could not identify the source of the fire.
