Fire in Lahore house kills six children
LAHORE (92 News) – As many as six minors were burnt to death in an apartment fire late on Saturday night near Sher Shah.
According to Rescue 1122 officials, the fire caused by a short circuit in a building, engulfed the entire floor which the family was occupying, before the help could arrive.
The blaze took time in making inroads into the living area and gave the occupants no chance to escape unburnt. The weakest of the family, six children of various ages, became the fatal victims of either asphyxiating smoke that filled the rooms of the flat fast or the infernal flames.
