Four members of a family sustained burn injuries in a fire followed by an explosion in Bangshal's Agasadek Lane in Old Dhaka early Saturday.

The injured are - Md Israfil (62), his wife Salma Begum (50),  their son Imran Hossain (28) and daughter Shahzadi Akter (35). 

They were admitted to Sheikh Hasina National Institute of Burn and Plastic Surgery.

Tarif Alarm, a nephew of Israfil, said that the family was sleeping when the fire originated around 4:00 am on the ground floor of a four-storey building. Hearing screams, locals rushed there and took them to the hospital.

A doctor on duty at the emergency department of the Burn and Plastic Surgery Institute said the condition of two of the injured is critical. Some 50 to 15 percent of their bodies have been burned.
