A fire gutted the stage built for the celebration of the 57th founding anniversary of Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU) on Saturday night.
President Abdul Hamid is scheduled to attend the programme as the chief guest on Sunday.
The fire broke out around 11:45 pm while the decoration works were going on near the administration building in the campus, according to eyewitnesses.
On information, six firefighting units rushed in and doused the fire around 12:45 am, said Shahidur Rahman, deputy director of Mymensingh Fire Service and Civil Defence.
Fire service officials primarily suspected that the fire was generated from an electric short circuit.
