President Rouhani orders investigation on Monday fire disaster

Tehran, Jan 22, IRNA – In a letter addressed to the interior minister, President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday evening ordered a thorough investigation about the Monday fire disaister that claimed the lives of two hard working ladies.

In his letter to Abdol-Reza Rahmani-Fazli, President Rouhani has exprerssed deep sorrow over the fire incidence in Tehran’s Johmouri (Republic) Avenue and the loss of lives of two hard working ladies.

He has also commissioned the interior minister to launch a serious investigation in shortest possible time about the incidence and to report to him about the sorrowful event, according to the Presidential Office website.

At 11:33 Monday morning a fire incident in an eight storey building allocated to dozens of garment workshops in Tehran’s Jomhouri Avenu urged two female workers to rush to the windows of the building’s 5th floor fearing to get burnt alive and stick to the alumnum iron bars on the building’s façade.

But as the aluminum bars heated beneath their tolerance threshold though, the poor women jumped down to their painful immediate deaths.

The fire hazard left also some 15 other peole injuried in addition to three fire fighters.
