Five people are dead and another five injured after a massive oil factory fire Monday in Shahdira, Pakistan.
Nearly 100,000 liters of oil ignited in the five-hour fire fought by firefighters equipped with 12 fire brigade vehicles, ARY News reports.
The roof of the factory collapsed from the intensity of the fire. Darkness following extinguishment has hindered the search for injured survivors, fire authorities said.
Those survivors rescued suffered extensive burns and were transported to the Allied Hospital’s burn unit.
