Gas supply resumed in Mirpur, Mohammadpur after 8 hours

The gas supply to large swathes of Dhaka resumed on Friday afternoon after around eight hours of disruption due to a fire on a distribution line in the capital's Shewrapara

Residents of Mirpur, Mohammadpur, parts of Dhanmondi, Shyamoli and Kalyanpur were without gas supply until Friday afternoon.

The disruption occurred after a gas line exploded into flames during work on WASA's water supply pipes in Shewrapara early Friday, Titas spokesman Mirza Mahbub Hossain said.

The authorities had difficulties putting out the fire, prompting them to halt the gas supply from the district regulating station in Gabtoli.

As a result, the supply to some parts of the capital was suspended, said Mahbub.
