LAHORE: The provincial government on Wednesday decided to provide loans to the businessmen affected by the fire at Lahore’s Hafeez Centre through the Punjab Rozgar Scheme (PRS), sources told Geo News.

According to sources, the provincial government is also considering providing shops in government-owned plazas to the traders affected by the blaze.

Last week, a fire had erupted inside a plaza located at the city's Gulberg main boulevard area on Sunday morning due to an electrical short circuit, spreading to the fourth floor of the building.
