Fire doused at Anarkali market in Dhaka’s Mouchak
Seven firefighting units put out the flames a little over an hour after the fire started
A fire broke out in the Anarkali Super Market situated near Mouchak intersection in Dhaka’s Malibagh area on Saturday afternoon.
The flames were first seen on the market’s third floor around 5:28pm, said Duty Officer Kamrul Hasan at the Fire Service and Civil Defence headquarters.
He said seven firefighting units had rushed to the spot and put out the fire around 6:40pm.

Although the fire had created mass panic among the shoppers, there were no reports of casualties yet.
