Gas line catches fire in city's Shewrapara

A fire which broke out in a gas line at West Shewrapara in the capital has been doused.

Two units of the fire service tamed the fire after almost three hours of efforts at 8:00am, said Lima Khanam, a control room officer of Fire Service and Civil Defence headquarters.

The Dhaka North City Corporation is currently carrying out work on the sewage system in Shewrapara's Iqbal Road where an exposed gas line suddenly caught fire around 5 am Friday.

No casualties were reported in the incident.

The initial belief is the fire was sparked by a discarded cigarette, said Lima.
