A woman has died in a fire that broke out at a residential building in Dhanmondi in the capital on Saturday morning. 

In addition, two people were hospitalized after being sick due to smoke from the fire.

Bachchu Mia, in-charge of the police outpost at Dhaka Medical College Hospital, said that three persons, including two women, were brought to the hospital. A woman was later pronounced dead by a doctor. He died of suffocation due to heavy smoke caused by the fire.

The identity of the casualties was not immediately known, Bachchu Mia added.
