One thought on “400 shanties gutted in Dhaka Bangladesh”
Fire is an imperative thing in human life, but uncontrolled fire is such a risky and dangerous thing also. It more or less happened in industrial sector and sometimes residential area also. Only way to avoid any kind of fire accident is awareness of causes of fire and the precautions. The government as well as everybody should aware of causes of uncontrolled fire and fire fighting.
