Pakistan Observer - - KARACHI CITY -

KARACHI—A man was burnt alive while some oth­ers sus­tained burn wounds due to fire in a res­i­den­tial build­ing here on Wed­nes­day.

Res­cue sources said that fire trig­gered due to an elec­tric short cir­cuit in a res­i­den­tial build­ing in Baloch Colony lo­cal­ity of the me­trop­o­lis city of Karachi. The fire spread rapidly and en- gulfed en­tire build­ing within no time.

The fam­i­lies re­sid­ing in the build­ing rushed out of the build­ing in panic but a man sleeping in­side a room was trapped and burnt to death be­fore the blaze could be ex­tin­guished. Some of the res­i­dents sus­tained burn wounds who were shifted to hos­pi­tal for treat­ment.—INP
