DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) - A fire has raced through an 11-story building housing a garment factory and residential complex in Bangladesh's capital, killing at least eight people.

Fire officials say the fire broke out late Wednesday. By early Thursday, firefighters had found eight people dead.

They say the factory was on the first and second floor of the building, while the uppers floors were used as residential complex. The factory was closed during the accident.

They say a police official and the owner of the factory are among the dead.

The fire comes just two weeks after a factory building housing garment factories collapsed in Bangladesh, killing at least 803 people.
