KARACHI: A local pharmacy’s godown had caught fire on Sunday night in the Defence Housing Authority (DHA) Phase 2 was doused, media reported.
With no residential flats above the outlet, the two floors above the pharmacy served as its godown.
While the eruption of the remains unknown, the fire brigade vehicles were dispatched to the area to extinguish it on urgent basis – All five of which combined were able to put out the flames.
The fire had initially swept through the first floor but had spread to the second storey after completely ruining its actual point of origin.
It is stated that owing to the unavailability of a snorkel fire truck earlier, it was challenging to pour water on the flames, forcing firefighters to manually take water to higher floors of the building across.
