DHAKA John Tavares Jersey , July 9 (Xinhua) -- A devastating fire that broke out Saturday night at an eight- story ready-made garment factory building in Savar on the outskirts of Bangladesh capital Dhaka was brought under control early Sunday; there were no casualties.


Fire Service Official Shafiqul Islam told journalists that the fire broke out on the first floor of the factory and gutted the first and second floor by that time they arrived at the scene.


There were no casualties, he said, adding no one was trapped inside the building.


"About half an hour before the fire started, the factory was closed for the day at about 8:30 p.m. (local time) on Saturday. So there was no one inside the building."


Officials also said the country was lucky enough to avoid a big fire accident this time as the firefighters reached there timely.


The blaze at the building of Medlar Apperals Ltd started at around 9:15 p.m. (local time), Fire Service Control Room official Mahmudul Haque told Xinhua.


He said the fire that originated at the store room on the first floor of the building engulfed the whole floor swiftly.


A total of 12 fire firefighting units brought the flames under control at around 11: 54 p.m. (local time), he said, adding the firemen arrived in a prompt and timely manner.


The cause of the fire at the factory could not be known immediately.


But dozens of workers were reportedly injured in a stampede of hundreds of workers fleeing the fire.


In Bangladesh, poorly constructed buildings have long been the source of successive accidents, resulting in the death of workers.
