A fire has burnt to ashes around 30 warehouses of fabric scraps left over from ready-made garment factories, locally known as "jhut," in Gazipur's Tongi.
The warehouses located at a slum in the Millgate area caught fire around 3:15am on Saturday, just 30 hours after another warehouse located inside the premises of Olympia Textile Mill was gutted in the same neighbourhood.
