Factory gutted, seven injured in two fires – The Express Tribune RAWALPINDI

Factory gutted, seven injured in two fires – The Express Tribune: RAWALPINDI:

Seven men were injured and a perfume factory gutted in two separate fires here on Thursday, rescue officials said.

In the first incident, a fire engulfed a three-story building near Khursheed Cinema in Raja Bazaar containing a perfume factory and its showroom.

The early-morning fire caused problems for the fire fighters, as the old building contained a lot of wood and had just one entry and exit point, said a rescuer.

It took about an hour to get the fire under control. The factory, Jamil Hair Oils and Perfumes, was completely burnt. In the second incident seven people received minor injuries after a fire broke out on the ground floor of their house at Sanghar Town near Koral Chowk.
