KARACHI: At least four ambulances were destroyed in a fire outside Edhi Centre, near Sabzi Mandi on Wednesday.

No human loss was reported in the fire and the cause of the fire is not yet known, according to a private TV channel report.

The Edhi spokesperson said the fire spread quickly because of the wind, burning at least four ambulances. It also spread into Edhi Centre, burning the records and old clothes that were inside.

The spokesperson also said the fire department did not reach in time to minimise the damage caused by the flames.

Traffic is jammed on University Road near Edhi Centre as a result.

According to reports, the small fire spread very quickly because a petrol tank was lying in one of the vehicles.
