Major fire breaks out at Herat customs office

Major fire broke out at the customs office in Islam Qala border town in the western province of Herat on Saturday afternoon, the provincial governor Waheed Qatali said.

The governor said that they lack the required facilities to extinguish the blaze; therefore, they have sought Iran’s help.

Eyewitnesses said that dozens of fuel trucks have caught fire, which is spreading.

Local officials have not commented on possible casualties in the incident but said the fire has left huge financial losses to investors.

The imported power from Iran was disconnected in Herat after the fire damaged a 132-kilovolt power transmission line, the country’s power distributor, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat, said.
