Fire engulfs Karachi tyre factory
The cause of the fire could not be determined as of yet. According to a reporter from ARY News, there was no loss of life since there were no workers present inside the factory. The workers from the night shift had left and the workers who were supposed to arrive for the morning shift, had not arrived before the fire broke out.
However, costly tyres and supplies were burnt by the fire, which erupted in the storage. The exact cost of the damaged materials could not be assessed. The fire broken out was spreading fast and turning into a large one. As many as seven fire brigades were busy battling the flames. According to the ARY News’ reporter, the firefighters had controlled the situation and tamed the flames after struggling with it for almost one and a half hour.
