A devastating fire broke out in a slum near the Mahanagar project in the Rampura area in the capital at the early hour of Monday.

According to Kamrul Hasan, a duty officer at the Fire Service control room, the fire sparked at 1:28 am Sunday night (early Monday).

Five fire fighting units reached the spot and worked to douse the fire, he added.
