Burying the Victims

In the two weeks since the blaze, fire officials say they have inspected more than 200 factories in the area where Tazreen operated and have found that more than one-quarter of those lack adequate safety licenses and fire-fighting equipment, according to the Associated Press.

It was also discovered that Tazreen should have been closed months prior to the incident, because it failed to meet basic safety standards.
