It took four hours to douse the blaze
A case was registered at the Saddar police station against unidentified persons for a fire that erupted on the sixth floor of the FTC Building in Karachi four days ago.
The fire erupted at the office of National Bank, said Chief Fire Officer Tehsin Ahmed Siddiqui. The case was registered on the complaint of the bank’s senior vice president.
It took four hours to douse the blaze with the help of 10 fire tenders and two snorkels, according to the fire department. When asked about the delay in dousing the fire, Siddiqui said that first fire tenders were sent but the firefighters realised that they couldn’t douse the fire on their own.
“It takes us some time to dispatch fire trucks because there are only 24 fire stations in the city,” he said.
