KARACHI: A fire that broke out at a shopping mall on Dalmia Road has been brought under control, with no causalities, media reported.

Several shops at the basement and ground floor were gutted as fire erupted as a result of short-circuit at a shoe outlet in busy Millennium Mall located in Karachi’s Gulshan-e-Iqbal area.

The fire engulfed other nearby shops and the upper story within no time, however, fire fighters reached the scene and extinguished the blaze with nearly half a dozen fire tenders.
