Bhasantek fire: Death toll rises to 3 as another dies

The death toll from a fire that broke out at Paschim Bhashantek area of the capital on Friday (April 12) have risen to three as another burned victim died at a Dhaka hospital early Tuesday.

Six members of the family were injured after the fire broke out on the ground floor of the house in Natun Bazar Culvert Road area around 4:00am on April 12.

The couple's three children -- Liza, 18, with 30 percent burn injuries, Sujon, 9, with 55 percent, and Lamiya, 7, with 43 percent -- are still being treatment at the hospital.

According to the neighbour Moyna, victim Liton used to live with his family on the ground floor of a two-storey building on Culvert Road in Paschim Bhashantek area.
