News Summary: Dhaka factory lost fire certificate
By The Associated Press
EXPANDING: The factory's owner told AP that just three of the factory's eight floors were legal. He was building a ninth.
THE BACKDROP: A factory must be certified to operate, but the department usually gives factory owners some time to upgrade conditions. If they fail to do so, the department can file a court case to get it closed down. But it rarely does.
