A fire inside a multi-story garment factory outside Dhaka, Bangladesh killed at least 111 people.  Most of the workers inside the building died on the first and second floors, where there were not enough exits — and those that did exist did not open to the outside.  Bangladesh is the second largest clothes exporter after China, and has a notorious safety record; more than 500 workers have died in factory fires there since 2006.  (Photo: Abir Abdullah / EPA via The New York Times)

The factory stricken by this deadly fire was producing clothing for Tazreen Fashion Ltd., which was sold, among other places, at Switzerland’s discount C&A chain.

Bangladeshi factory fire kills dozens, but could’ve been much worse

  • 25+ people were killed in a large garment factory fire in Bangladesh today
  • 100+ more were injured; the blaze took more than five hours to put out source

» And it could’ve been way worse: See, the multi-story factory (located in the capital of Bangladesh, Dhaka) housed 10,000 workers, mostly women. Many of them, however, were out to lunch at the time. Whew. For those who weren’t so lucky, though, it was very bad. VERY bad.
