Blaze kills dozens in Dhaka historic district

A fast-moving fire swept through a historic district of Bangladesh's capital, Dhaka, killing at least 78 people, officials say.


The blaze broke out at night in a residential building that had flammable material stored on the ground floor.


Members of a bridal party are thought to be among the victims. It is not yet clear what started the fire.


The fire broke out in a mixed-use building at 11:40 local time (17:40 GMT) on Wednesday when many residents were sleeping.


It started at a chemical warehouse on the ground floor and then raced through three other buildings, officials say. Many people were trapped and unable to escape the flames.


Witnesses and police said gas explosions helped fuel the blaze.
