Fire razes Enugu timber market

Fire gutted no fewer than five shops on Tuesday at the Timber Market in Kenyatta Street, Uwani, Enugu.

It was gathered that prompt response by the State Fire Service quenched the fire from spreading to other parts of the plywood market.

A firefighter, who preferred anonymity, said the service received a distress call around 9.45 pm that the market was on fire and it immediately swung into action and quenched the fire before it spread to other parts of the market.

“As you can see, only about five shops were affected by the fire in this big market. I cannot say much on this incident as I am not the Chief Fire Officer,” the fireman said.

Meanwhile, an eyewitness who identified himself as Joe, told the News Agency of Nigeria that some neighbours in the area rushed to the market and within a few minutes the fire service arrived and quenched the fire.

”I thank God and the fire service for the quick response, otherwise, it would have been disastrous,” he said.
