Staff Reporter : A fire broke out at the World University of Bangladesh campus on Green Road in Dhaka on Monday. However, five firefighting units rushed to the spot and put out the flames within one hour, said an official of the Fire Service and Civil Defence. No casualties were reported immediately, said Fire Service headquarters duty officer Ershad Hossain. "We will know about the cause of fire after investigation." Ershad said the fire broke out around 1:10pm on the second floor of the university building and was doused around 2pm. He also added that it was not a major fire incident. Speaking to The New Nation, the university's Deputy Registrar Md Kamrul Hossain said: "A room on the second floor of the university building caught on fire. The chairs, tables, documents, and some books were damaged by the fire." "But as the university is closed due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the students are currently attending online classes and that is why there was no major damage done by the fire," he added. However, he could not confirm how the fire ignited.
