Drone footage shows smoke rising from the spot after a massive fire broke out in an inland container depot at Sitakunda, near the Port City Chittagong, Bangladesh on Monday.

BANGLADESH: Firefighters in Bangladesh brought a blaze at a container depot under control on Tuesday, three days after fiery explosions killed at least 41 people at a facility that a senior fire service official suspected had not followed safety guidelines.

Drone footage showed smoke and rows of burnt-out containers from the fire that began late on Saturday, triggering blasts and blazes at Sitakunda, 40 km (25 miles) from the southeastern port city of Chittagong.

Authorities have not determined the cause of the disaster but suspect a container of hydrogen peroxide was the source.

“The fire has not been put out completely but there is no risk of further explosion as our team has sorted out the chemical containers .. one by one,” senior fire service official Monir Hossain told Reuters from the scene.

“We haven’t found any basic fire safety measures … There were simply some extinguishers. Nothing else. They didn’t follow storage guidelines for hazardous chemicals.”

The director of the facility, the BM Container Depot, did not answer calls to his mobile telephone seeking comment. At the depot were about 800 containers filled with exportable items, some 85% of which were ready-made garments, Sikder said. Bangladesh is the world’s second-biggest exporter of garments.
