Kemari fire incident causes country-wide suspension of supply of petroleum products

September 3, 2020 (MLN): A fire has reportedly broken out at an oil terminal in Kemari today, causing a suspension of petrol supply to other parts of the country from Karachi.

This was announced the All Pakistan Oil Tankers Association, which further said that massive losses had been incurred due to the fire.

This comes as a huge blow to most of the oil marketing companies, especially Pakistan State Oil and Shell, as they use this terminal to supply petroleum products across the country.

Firefighting operation continued to douse the blaze at a Petrol Unit in Kemari Oil Terminal-I area, jointly by firefighting teams of various organizations along with the Sindh Rangers and rescue services.

The personnel of Pakistan Rangers (Sindh) have reached the spot and cordoned off the area, said a spokesperson of the Sindh Rangers.

Teams of the fire brigade, Karachi Water and Sewerage Boards and other organization concerned are also called to join the firefighting and rescue operation, said rescue services.
