CLEAN: Dhaka blaze kills 117, injures hundreds

Bangladeshi firefighters said Friday that an illegal chemical warehouse had fuelled a toxic blaze that ripped through one of Dhaka's most densely populated areas, killing nearly 120 people. The deadliest fire in Bangladesh's 39-year history raged for three hours late Thursday, destroying at least six multi-storey apartment buildings, one of which was hosting a wedding party, and gutting a string of small shops.
