At least five people were killed in a fire at the capital’s United Hospital on Wednesday night, a fire service official said. 

“We have recovered five bodies,” Kamrul Islam, duty officer of fire service control room, told UNB.
 
The fire broke out at the corona ward around 9:55pm and was extinguished around 10:25pm.

Kamrul said they initially suspect an AC explosion caused the fire.

In February last year, a fire broke out at Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College. The fire reportedly originated at a storeroom on the first floor of a new building of the hospital.
