KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): Financial losses have resulted from a predawn fire at an arms depot of the Boarder Police Force (BPF) in the Spin Boldak district of southern Kandahar province, an official said on Tuesday.

The fire that broke out at around 1:00am left residents of locality worried, as it triggered small and heavy explosions at the arms depot. The governor’s spokesman said the cause of the fire could not be ascertained so far.

Samim Khpalwak told Pajhwok Afghan News a team had been dispatched to the site to ascertain the cause.  He said a car was burnt to ashes and a clinic near the site damaged.

But a security source, who wished to go unnamed, said six healthinfo-icon officials of the clinic were wounded in the incident.

Residents of the area were worried by the massive fire. “It was midnight and people were sleeping when a series of blast were heard in the area,” said Abdul Shakoor, a resident of the locality.
