Over 100 makeshift homes destroyed in Pakistan fire

KARACHI, PAKISTAN (AP) — A massive fire burned over 100 burlap-and-plastic shelters in the southern port city of Karachi, forcing hundreds of poor nomads to spend the night in the open amid winter temperatures, but there were no casualties, police said. It was unclear what caused the fire in the city’s Teenhatti neighbourhood, where hundreds of nomad families live in makeshift homes, area police chief Liaquat Hayyat said.
