A fire broke out at a closed jute mill in the city’s AK Khan area on Friday afternoon.

Deputy assistant director of Chattogram Fire Service and Civil Defence M Jasim Uddin said the fire originated at Victoria Jute Mills, which was earlier shut down, around 5:30pm.

On information, six-firefighting units with 13 vehicles rushed in to douse the flame, he said.

Sources said importers have been using a number of warehouses of the closed jute mill for storing their goods after being imported through the Chittagong port.unb
