Massive fire in garment factory


Firemen on Sunday were struggling to put out a fire that broke out in a garment factory in Karachi’s SITE area in the morning.

According to media reports, the firemen were facing difficulty to reach the source of the fire due to lack of proper access and smoke in the building.

According to the officials, over one dozen fire tenders were put to use in an attempt to douse the fire, but the fire was still blazing by time this report was filed.

According to a Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) official quoted by a local media outlet, the fire inside the textile mill started at around 9:54am on Sunday. The few fire tenders sent to control the situation weren’t enough, given the state of fire, so additional fire tenders were called from across the metropolis.

Pakistan Navy’s fire tenders also joined in the efforts to control the blaze
