Since posting this, we've learned that teenagers died in the fire (http://www.newagebd.com/detail.php?date=2013-01-27&nid=38104#.UQROk-gZzeI) and that the factory produced clothing for several European brands:

"The unlicensed garment factory in the Bangladesh capital where seven women workers died in a fire on Saturday was making clothing for Spanish giant Inditex and several French brands.

"An AFP correspondent sifting through the charred remains of the Smart Export factory on Sunday found labels such as Bershka, a retailer owned by Inditex; Sol’s; Scott and Fox; and G Blog, which is part of France’s Gemo."
