Another Life Lost – Gazipur Factory Fire

One life has been confirmed lost and more than 4 others injured at the fire that originated on 28 September 2014 in a yarn dyeing factory named Mega Yarn Dyeing Mills Limited in Gazipur. The victim, Anwar Hossain, was an operator of the factory.


The fire broke out at 3rd floor of the nine-storey building in the Mega Yarn Dyeing Mills Ltd at around 3:35 AM, on information, 10 firefighting units from Savar, Export Processing Zone, Dhamrai, Headquarters and Kaliakoir stations rushed to the spot and tamed the flame around 8:00 AM in the morning, and the fire was subsequently doused by 9:00AM in the morning.
It is to be noted that this factory has been inspected by the Bangladesh Accord for Fire and Building Safety according to their public disclosure report on September 2014 [1]. According to the Accord, the factory had 300 workers, which is of course according to our sources far less than the actual number of workers employed at the time (estimated at 500+ by workers).
