8 killed in factory blaze in Bangladesh as death toll from Dhaka collapse tops 900

At least eight people have been killed after a fire tore through a garment factory complex in Dhaka overnight.
 

The fire comes just two weeks after a building housing clothing factories collapsed in the Bangladeshi capital, killing at least 912 people, again raising concerns about safety measures in the country's £13 billion garment industry.
 

In November, a fire at another factory killed 112 people.
 

Fire brigade officials said the latest blaze broke out last night and by early Thursday, crews had found eight people dead, including a police officer and the factory's managing director.
 

The fire started not long after up to 300 workers at the Tung Hai Sweater factory went home for the day, fire official Nazrul Islam told the Associated Press.
 

It burned parts of the first and second floors, which housed the factory, and parts of the third, which housed apartments.
 

Bhajan Kumar Sarkar, another fire official, said the managing director of the factory, Mahbubur Rahman, and a police official were among the dead. All the dead had been found in the stairwell.
 

Mr Sarkar said it took more than three hours to bring the blaze under control.
