Several shops reduced to ashes in Parwan

CHARIKAR (Pajhwok): Several shops were gutted in a fire incident in the Seyah Gard district of central Parwan province, an official said on Saturday.

The fire broke out in a gas selling shop on Friday afternoon and spread quickly to nearby shops containing wood, food, garment and oil, said Noor Aqa Sami, the district chief.

He said the fire took hours to be put out and the shop owners suffered hundreds of thousands of afghanis losses.

A member of the provincial council, Abdul Rahman, said they demanded help from neighboring Kapisa and Panjsher provinces in extinguishing the blaze.

However, a source said several shops were reduced to ashes in the fire due to the late arrival of the fire brigade.
