Fire Ravages Shops At Serrekunda Market
By Bubacarr k. Sowe

At least seven shops have perished in a fire outbreak at the Serrekunda Market between the hours of eight to nine in the morning of Saturday, November 10. Omar Njie, whose fatherís shop is involved told reporters† that he suspected that the inferno was caused by an electric spark in one of the shops.
Mr. Njie whose shop contained cosmetics and clothes estimated that he has lost over a million dalasis worth of goods. Malang Jatta, another victim, whose shop contained commodities such as rice, sugar and other basic commodities, said he has lost over one hundred and seventy-five thousand dalasis.
A landlord, Gibou Jange said he does not know how the fire started, but opined that a fault in the electricity cables might have started the fire.†
He said the electric cables connected to the shops were last inspected in March and that is repeated every two to three years.
Mr. Jagne said he earn about thirty five thousand dalasis annually from the shops.†

Serrakunda Market is very prone to fires,last time they were blamed on electrical problems that had perhaps been caused by stallholders overloading the circuts,the same may have happened here again,maybe there will be an investigation by NAWAC to tell us how this could happen again,wasit the same cause this time?
