Woman dies in fire

A woman was killed while her mother was wounded in a fire that broke out at a house in Federal B Area's Block 17. Police said 23-year-old Komal, daughter of Farooq Haider, died from burns, and her mother suffered burns.

Neighbours gathered outside the house after hearing their hue and cry. They attempted to douse the blaze themselves before informing the fire brigade department. The deceased's father told the police that he was not at home when the fire broke. Police and fire brigade officials suspected that the fire apparently broke out due to a short circuit.
