The cause has yet to be ascertained

A woman and a child suffocated to death in a fire at a shopping mall on Gujrat's Bhimber Road Wednesday morning. 

Twenty-two people were injured, while 62 people were safely rescued.

The fire erupted on the ground floor of the eight-storey building. They were shops on four storeys of the building, and flats on the other four storeys.

More than 50 shops and 42 apartments have been damaged in the fire.

Twenty fire trucks reached the site to douse the flame.

The cause of the fire has yet to be ascertained.

The roads leading to the mall were closed for traffic after the fire erupted and the rescue teams had asked people living in residential plots near the mall to vacate their houses and apartments.
