High rise fire

Staff Correspondent

The capital's Kemal Ataturk Avenue was closed Sunday as fire spread in a high-rise building near Banani Market.

Witnesses said scores of people were trapped in the building as fire-fighters fought the flames.

Initial reports from the scene indicate the fire may have originated in the basement carpark of the high-rise as a vehicle's CNG tank exploded.
