Ministry of Interior on Saturday clarified that they do know what might have caused the fire in the Khairkhwa Market in Kabul, but they are sure that millions have been lost due to the fire that spread quickly.
A fire broke out on Thursday night in Khairkhwa Market in Nadir Pashtun Street of Kabul’s PD1.
As per a statement by the Ministry of Interior, a minimum of 1,000 shopkeepers have lost everything in the fire and millions have been lost this way. The shopping centers were famous for electronic goods, household appliances and mobile phones.
Interior ministry spokesman Najib Danish said that the fire spread through the area when a fuel storage unit belonging to a telecommunications company caught fire.
According to Danish, the presence of flammable items in the shops worsened the fire but fortunately, the firefighters managed to stop the fire from spreading towards other areas.
