Cameroon: fire guts two shops in Nkambe

At least two shops are reported to have gone up in flames last night at the Nkambe Central market, Donga Mantung Division of the North West Region of Cameroon.

Sources say the shops went up in flames as a result of an electrical circuit in one of the shops but locals were on hand to put off the fire from spreading to other shops in the market

The Fon of Nkambe has dismissed initial reports claiming the fire incident was an arson attack and has called for the local population to remain calm.

This is the second fire incident recorded in Nkambe for more than six months after part of the St. Rita’s Catholic school went up in flames last academic year with fingers pointing to an arson attack.
