    Oh! I hope it didn’t cause any harm to the personnel.

    I got confused after reading your first line. I think DHA needs to be corrected…

    OMG…i lived right next to the Rahat Bakery, i grew up there. This is so sad, i hope their were no causalities. On my last trip to Pakistan i went to browse the bakery and the general store, it was nice to see how they grew from just a one story bakery to multi story departmental store with all sorts of merchandise. I really hope they recover from this and weather if they had any type of insurance which will help them rebuild.

    Interestingly enough, not only I grew up on their bread, but I and the family even knew the (late) founder too personally. The main main, forget his name, who founded this operation passed away several years ago.

    Back in 70’s this was a one shop operation. Earlier (60s?), the founder used to personally deliver bread to the homes on the back of a bicycle. Talk about realizing your dreams — happens in Pakland too for some!

    Would be curious as to the cause of the fire.
    Still this is sad.
