Lighter fuel, deodorant cans and chemicals fuelled Bangladesh blaze


DHAKA (Reuters) - Lighter fuel, deodorant cans and drums full of chemicals stored in a residential building in the Bangladeshi capital fuelled a blaze this week that killed at least 70 people and injured more than 50, a senior fire official said on Friday.

"We found hundreds of cans of deodorants, lighter refuelling fuel, plastic substances, electronic items and drums containing chemicals," said Julfikar Rahman, director of Fire Services and Civil Defence, who visited the site on Friday.
