A rise in fire related incidents... By Daniyal

04 February, 2013

There has been a rather unsettling rise in fires and gas cylinder explosions at commercial and private sites homes, restaurants and factories have all been in the news lately because of tragic incidents related to fire. The most recent to become a victim of this is a building in the army headquarters in Karachi. The fire broke out early on Sunday morning and, thankfully, no casualties have been reported yet. Most of these fires start because of faulty gas cylinders, leaking gas pipes or short-circuiting of electricity.

This is happening because the country is facing a severe power and gas shortage. The only way people can make up for this is by having gas cylinders at home, of which many have been poorly made. Short-circuiting is happening because of the constant load shedding and electricity wires going haywire. Businesses are being ruined, homes are been burned to the ground and precious lives are being lost. When will the authorities do something about this?
