At least four people have died in a fire ignited by a leaked gas cylinder in a kitchen in Gazipur. 

 

The fire also burnt down more than 50 houses in a colony in the district’s Kaliakoir Upazila at around 5 am on Monday, said the Fire Service and Civil Defence. 

 

The firemen tamed the blaze within an hour, said Station Officer Kabirul Alam. 

 

Most of the residents of the houses were sleeping when the fire broke out. 

 

The dead were Md Milon Mia, 40, from Gaibandha, his wife Munni Begum, 30, Md Farhad Hossain, 40, and Md Abdul Awal Mia, 40, from Jagannathpur. 

 

Ignited by a gas cylinder during cooking at the house of Mohammed Ali, the fire quickly spread to the nearby houses, said Kabirul Alam.
