Shezan Juice factory fire: Reasons that led to the catastrophe

It becomes clear that the workers were left with no chance in face of the raging inferno at the Shezan Juice factory in Rupganj, Narayanganj on Thursday.

Fire service officials, experts and relatives of the victims pointed out a number of reasons for the blaze that claimed more than 50 lives.

Experts said the absence of proper fire safety measures and not following the government’s fire safety instructions were the main reasons behind the deadly fire.

“The stairs were not enough. There were only two stairways inside such a big factory, while there should have been at least four to six stairs for the emergency exit,” Debashish Bardhan, Deputy Director (operations and maintenance) of Fire Service and Civil Defence, told The Business Standard.

Many parts of the factory were locked which might have caused the fire to spread quickly and kill so many people. The factory management locked the floor gates to bar the employees from stealing the lollipops and juices they produced.

Fire officials said the workers may have had a chance at escape if the management had not implemented the medieval practice of locking the gates of the factory floors.
