A Category III badly damaged two towel-making factories in New Karachi on Wednesday.
The blaze broke out in a factory in the evening, and soon engulfed all three floors of the building.
After some time, 10 fire tenders arrived to put out the fire, but they soon ran out of water. As they returned to fetch more water, the fire spread to the adjacent towel-making factory. Fire tenders from all over the city had been called to the scene.
However, some fire engines had already gone to extinguish a blaze in a godown in Banaras Colony and in electricity wires in another part of the city.
It took the firemen several hours to put out the blaze, which reduced goods worth millions of rupees to ashes. The authorities are investigating to ascertain what caused the fire.
