Fire destroys shops at Makola market

The building opposite the SIC Mall at Makola in the central business district is being razed down by fire.

The inferno is reported to have started around 9 am on Monday on the last floor of the three-storey building.

According to witnesses, when the fire started, they called on the fire service station that is situated a few meters away but they claimed “they do not have water” to douse the flames.

The fire then spread to the other floors destroying properties as traders and other spectators looked on.
