Two fuel trucks caught fire in front of the under-construction third terminal of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka on Wednesday.

Shahjahan Shikdar, deputy assistant director of Fire Service and Civil Defence headquarters’ media cell, said the fire started at 10:12 am.

On receiving information, four firefighting units from Uttara and Kurmitola rushed to the spot and brought the blaze under control around 10:52 am, he added. No casualties have been reported.

The fire is believed to have been caused by a spark in a generator while loading oil from one truck to another. The trucks which belong to Alif Enterprises had 27000 litres of diesel.
