Minor boy charred to death in B’baria

A six-year-old boy was charred to death while three others of the family sustained burn injuries in a fire that broke out at their house in Ashuganj Bazar of Brahmanbaria district.

The deceased was identified as Zubair, son of Makbul Hossain of the area.

Station officer of Ashuganj Fire Service and Civil Defense control room, Mizanur Rahman, said the fire broke out at the ground floor of the house and soon spread to other parts.

Makbul Hossain, his wife Rekha and their elder son Joy sustained burn injuries in the fire. Though they managed to come out of the house, Makbul’s younger son Zubair was charred to death.

“The body was recovered by firemen. An electrical short-circuit seemed to have triggered the fire,” the official said.
