    Breaking: Deadly fire engulfs dozens of tankers, trucks in Afghan capital

    At least nine Afghan people have lost their lives and 14 others sustained injuries after major fire set dozens of fuel tankers, trucks and other vehicles ablaze in the capital, Kabul.

    According to reports, Afghanistan’s Interior Ministry Spokesman Tariq Arian said on Sunday that the casualties took place after a huge fire broke out in Qala-e-Murad Bek area in Shakardara district north of Kabul.

    Eyewitnesses said the fire, which caused power cuts to some parts of the Afghan capital, damaged more than 50 fuel tankers, trucks and other vehicles as well as a large number of houses and shops.

    The spokesman said they were still investigating the cause of the blaze.

    Two security sources had earlier told Reuters they believed it was caused by a Taliban rocket attack in the area, however, the militant group dismissed any involvement in the deadly incident.

    The new development came just a day after the United States and its NATO partners officially began pulling out the last of their troops from the war-torn country.
