Fire Breaks Out in Pakistan Stock Exchange Building

A fire broke out in the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) building early Monday morning, causing a temporary halt in trading activities. The blaze, which erupted around 8 a.m., was attributed to a short circuit, according to media reports.

Rescue teams promptly responded to the incident, deploying five fire tenders, a snorkel, and a browser to control and extinguish the fire. The firefighting efforts were successful, and the blaze, described as of low intensity, was brought under control within an hour.

Trading at the PSX was suspended during this period but resumed shortly after the fire was contained and the building was deemed safe for re-entry. Officials from the Pakistan Stock Exchange confirmed that while there was material damage, there were no casualties reported.

Deputy Commissioner Altaf Hussain Sario visited the site to oversee and review the rescue operations. His presence highlighted the seriousness of the incident and the coordinated efforts of various departments to ensure the safety and security of the PSX premises.

The swift response by the firefighting teams and the subsequent reopening of the building underscores the efficiency and preparedness of Karachi’s emergency services in handling such incidents.
