Cameroon: Fire ravages part of Kumba market

Part of the Kumba main market on Saturday morning went up in flames, sources have confirmed.

The cause of the fire is not yet known but fire fighters immediately arrived the scene to put out the fire which early reports say was caused by an electric failure.

The fire broke out in the market which has been deserted for some days now as locals observe a lockdown imposed by separatist fighters in an attempt to counter Sunday’s Legislative and Municipal elections.

Local administrative authorities went to the scene to determine the damage caused by the fire as the population joined hands with the fire fighting brigade to put out the fire.
