Mother, two children killed in fire

A mother and her two children were killed on Friday when a fire engulfed their house located on Jamshed Road.
The three killed have been identified as Shumaila, eight-year-old Insiya and seven-year-old Sufiyan.
Speaking to reporters, the children’s grandfather said got to know of the fire due to the smoke in the house. “We broke the doors of the house, but were unable to save my daughter-in-law and grandchildren”.
The fire was extinguished by rescues officials and police said the fire was a result of a short-circuit.
In the last 24 hours, this is the second incident of a fire claiming lives in Karachi. On Thursday, two people were killed when they jumped from a burning building. —INP
