Naudero, Sindh: Three houses were completely burnt and five others partly damaged in wee hours of Saturday at Ghareebabad locality here. Due to dusty winds electricity supply cables touched with one another and sparks resulted in fire in Katcha houses of three labours namely Karim Bux Solangi, Amir Bux Shaikh and Ali Madad Shaikh. These huts were completely burnt along with all household items; however, no loss of life was reported. Local fire brigade arrived but due to narrow streets it was of no help.
Deputy Commissioner Larkana, Ghanwar Ali Leghari and other officers arrived on the spot and the fire was brought under control but it was too late to save household items of poor labours from complete burning. The affected villagers appealed the government to provide monetary assistance to them to erect new huts for their families.
