Massive fire around Walled City in Lahore

There has been a massive fire around Mochi Gate area of the Walled City in Lahore. Reportedly, it all started in a small perfumery shop and quickly spread to gut adjoining houses and a masjid in the compact locality. It is almost impossible for fire-engines to reach the affected area.

Locals are trying to put fire out using basic tools while a lone civil defense/Rescue 1122 helicopter is throwing water from above. The fire has been burning for quite a couple of hours and if not controlled, can spread to a vast residential area.
