The neighbours suspect the fire started from the cooking gas cylinder blast. Five fire fighters managed to douse the blaze later, said Ohidul Islam, station officer of Algi Fire Fire Service.
The exact cause of the fire could not be known immediately, he said. Md Shahid Hossain, officer-in-charge of Farid Ganj police station said the woman's charred body was recovered. Legal procedure is underway in this regard, he said.
