Lunches anchored at the Fishery near Karachi caught fire in the early hours of Wednesday.
Firefighters said that the blaze started at berth number seven and eight of Kala Pani. The fire has destroyed three launches, while the others are also in flames.
The fire is spreading due to strong winds which are causing trouble in the firefighting operation, according to Fishery Security officials. At least five fire brigade vehicles, including a water bowser, from different centers are busy extinguishing the fire.
The crew of the Fishermen Cooperative Housing Society is also taking part in the operation to put out the fire.
Meanwhile, the firefighting operation faced difficulties as the vehicles could not get water from the Eidgah fire brigade headquarters near the Civil Hospital as its power supply was interrupted.
Since fire tenders could not be refilled with water at the fire brigade headquarters, the Karachi Port Trust and the Pakistan Navy were approached to help with the firefighting operation, according to a fire brigade operator.
The DC office has been informed about the conflagration.
