Two people were killed and two others wounded in a fire that broke out at a garage at Kismat Nawapara of Jessore on Monday night.

Parimal Chandra Kunda, Assistant Director of Jessore Fire Service and Civil Defence Station said the fire originated around 8:30 pm following the blast of an electric transformer when denting was going on at the garage near Rajonigandha Filling Station.

The transformer turned into a fireball and fell into a truck parked inside the garage, he said, adding that the blaze soon engulfed the entire garage, burning it down along with three trucks and a covered van.

Tipped-off, five firefighting units rushed in and brought the fire under control around 10:30 pm, reports UNB.

They later recovered the bodies of two people from the garage.
