As a nallah in Abul Fazal catches fire just a few minutes ago today residents rushed to douse it.
Many residents in Azad Road said when fire started spreading some rushed with buckets of water to be stopped by others.
The fire was doused with dust and sand on the street, said residents, adding that no casualties were reported.
A resident said that somebody tried to steal petrol from bike and it overflowed in the nallah.
Residents were lucky in the sense that fire didn’t spread as electric wires were dangling just a few metres above the road.
