General News Fire guts Chipata’s Kaumbwe market

Marketeers at Chipata’s Kaumbwe market today wake up to a rude shock when they found their trading stands burnt to ashes.

About 300 stands have been burnt to ashes following an inferno which swept through the entire market last night.

A check by ZANIS found the trading stands completely burnt as the owners and on lookers looked on in disbelief.

And when interviewed, one of the marketeers , Petronela Mwale, revealed that the fire started around midnight and was believed to have been started by some unknown people.

She said that alert shop owners and Chipata Municipal Council fire bridged prevented the fire from making further damage.

Meanwhile, Kaumbwe Market Chairperson, Clement Mwelwa, revealed that last year, fire also gutted the market destroying some trading stands.

Mr. Mwelwa said that the fire that was experienced last year and that of last night both started from the same place on the eastern side of the building area.
