A fire incident in the early hours of Tuesday morning engulfed the Brikama Market destroying 20 stalls.

The cause of the inferno was not established at the time of gathering the report. However, our reporter has been reliably informed the Brikama Area Council (BAC) has set-up a committee to get to the bottom of the latest market blaze in the country.

Brikama Market is one of the busiest markets where thousands of people who come from all parts of the West Coast Region and Casamance do their daily businesses. The number of stalls affected by the yesterday fire incident was not confirmed.

Authorities are currently investigating the cause of the fire.

It could be recalled that two months ago Basse market was also consumed by fire which burnt more than 300 stalls.
