Mir Jamal Habiganj Correspondent: The fire at the cotton warehouse of Sayham Cotton and Faisal Spinning Factory in Madhabpur has caused a loss of around Tk 70-75 crore, according to the authorities of the organization.
Aminur Rahman, deputy general manager of Sayham Cotton Mill, said there were about 15,000 bales of cotton in the warehouse. They have lost at least 70 to 75 crore rupees due to this fire.
Earlier, the fire started around 12:30 pm on Wednesday. 6 units of fire service are working to control the fire.
Habiganj fire station officer Shimul said. Rafi said that after receiving the news of the fire at 12:30 pm, the fire service personnel reached the spot and started working to control the fire. Until the report is written at 8 am, 6 units of fire service in Sylhet, Habiganj, Shayestaganj and Madhabpur are trying to control the fire.
He added that the fire broke out in a cotton warehouse of about five lakh square feet used jointly by Sayham Cotton and Faisal Spinning Factory. The severity of the fire has been somewhat reduced by long efforts. However, the fire has spread inside the huge pile of cotton. That’s why they are thinking that it may take all day on Thursday to bring it under complete control. He also said that there would be huge financial loss in this incident.
