Huge explosion have been reported at a chemical warehouse in Shympur's Kadamtoli in the capital today.
Massive fire spread after the blast. Fire fighters doused the blaze after few hours.
The government has approved a project to construct chemical warehouses at Kadamtoli for temporarily relocating chemical godowns from Old Dhaka after at least 70 people were killed in a massive fire that originated from a chemical godown in Chawkbazar's Churihatta area last year.
In 2010, at least 124 people were killed in a fire at chemical warehouses at Old Dhaka's Nimtoli area.
