KARACHI: A bedsheet manufacturing factory, located at the SITE area in Karachi, caught an uncontrollable fire on Thursday morning.
According to the fire brigade officials, the fire broke out in the bedsheet making factory. As soon as the fire was reported, two fire tenders were dispatched. However, six more fire tenders were sent as the fire could not get under control.
