KARACHI: A fire that had erupted at a flour factory late Monday night here in the metropolis' Nazmiabad area when a boiler exploded was doused almost three hours later.

There was no labourer inside the building — a two-storey structure — at the time of the blaze, emergency services explained, adding that the boiler is located on its rooftop.

Flames — which had engulfed the building's entire top floor — burnt down inventory worth hundreds of thousands of rupees.

Eight fire tenders, two water dousers, and more than a dozen firefighters managed to bring under control and douse the fire.

The fire spread through the top floor when the boiler exploded at around 2:45 AM PST local time, prompting emergency services authorities to be called to the scene immediately.
