Cotton and machinery worth millions of rupees was damaged when a fire broke out in Data Cotton Factory factory in Pannu Aqil early Monday morning.
Fire tenders were dispatched to the scene of the fire, but could not douse the flames.
The fire brigade from Rohri was called as back up and the inferno was doused after eight hours of effort. The fire reportedly broke out because of a short circuit.
