Four people injured
A fire broke out at a privately-owned oil terminal in Karachi's Keamari on Thursday afternoon.
Two people were killed in the blaze and four injured. They were shifted to the Burns Ward at Civil Hospital. The cause of the fire hasn't been determined yet. The additional commissioner has been tasked with investigating the cause.
The KPT, navy and KMC fire brigades managed to extinguish the fire after three hours.
The fire erupted near Terminal 1.
According to officials, dozens of companies have their terminals in this area. The fire erupted in a spot where a leak formed in the oil line.
There was heavy police presence at the scene and the authorities had blocked access to the terminal entrance.
Staff at nearby terminals were also evacuated as firefighters used foam to extinguish the flames.
The KPT is now investigating the extent of the damages.
