TALOQAN (Pajhwok): A fire breakout gutted 20 shops and two warehouses in Cha Ab district of northern Takhar province, an official said on Tuesday.

Deputy police chief Atiqullah Haidari told Pajhwok Afghan News the fire erupted in a wood shop and spread to other shops and go-downs at around 8:00pm last night until it was controlled at 5:00am this morning.

Najmuddin, a resident, said police and common people tried to put out the blaze at its early stage but it became powerful again.

The fire brigade team arrived in the district from Taloqan at around 4:00am and managed to control the fire within an hour, he said.

Investigation has been launched to ascertain the cause and the subsequent losses in the incident.
