Goods ‘worth Rs30m’ gutted in mysterious fire


HYDERABAD:

A fire broke out at a warehouse within the limits of Pinyari police station on Sunday, with goods believed to be worth Rs30 million going up in the flames. It includes sacks, including empty sugar sacks, cardboard bags, and other items. The warehouse, owned by Abdul Waheed Qureshi, is located near the Expo Center in Noorani Basti.

According to first responders, the fire quickly engulfed the entire warehouse. It was so intense that the flames could be seen from a distance. It also triggered a panic in nearby areas. The tin roof of the warehouse also collapsed during the fire and it spread to warehouses on either side. As a result of the fire, the paper and cardboard used in preparing the paper and cardboard bags were also burnt to ashes.

The Market Fire Brigade, which was the first at the scene, called reinforcement from other stations due to the severity of the fire. They included Shaheed Inayat Ali Fire Station, Central Fire Brigade Station Latifabad and Gulshan-e-Hali. It was brought under control after several hours. Upon receiving the information about the fire, Executive Engineer (ExEn) Amjad Sheikh, ExEn Phalili Arshad Sheikh, and Liaquat Colony Sub-Division Hydro Union Chairman Sajjad Qaim Khani along with their staff arrived.

They immediately switched off the power to the entire feeder as a safety measure. When the fire was put out, power was restored to the area. The concerned officers of HESCO have clarified that the fire was not caused by a short circuit because there was no electricity connection in the warehouse and no wires had been installed inside the warehouse.
