Lahore: Fire erupts in building in Lohari gate, kills six


LAHORE: At least six members of a family on early Thursday were killed as a four-storey house caught fire.


Firefighters and rescue teams reached the spot but faced difficulties in their rescue operation due to narrow streets in the area. The flames were extinguished after a long battle with blaze.

The process of cooling is underway.

Four people have been rescued up until now including a one year old child and a woman. A husband and wife and two children remain yet to be found.

The fire was so severe that it engulfed the entire house very quickly. At least six fire brigade vehicles were deployed in bringing the fire under control.
