National Bank’s regional branch on fire?
KARACHI: Cause of fire that engulfed the sixth floor of FTC building – harboring National Bank’s offices – here this morning has not yet been ascertained.
It is pertinent to mention here that in an enormous Metropolis like Karachi there are only 24 fire stations. Hence the sufficient number of fire tenders reaches the scene from far off places that let the fire spread.
In case of today’s fire too it took ten fire tenders and two snorkels four hours to douse the incendie, but the fire tenders reached the spot quite late.
