Fire guts Chipili houses

General News Fire guts Chipili houses

Barely two weeks after 14 houses were burnt in chief Katuta’s area of Mwense district, another 10 grass thatched houses have been burnt in Chipili district.

The incident which affected four villages happened in chief Mutipula’s area of Chipili district in Luapula province.

Mwense District Commissioner Victor Kasuba who confirmed the development to ZANIS in Mwense yesterday said property worth thousands of kwacha was destroyed in the infernal.

The DC said the victims were not at home when the bush fire swept through their houses burning all household items but no life was lost.

He named some of the burnt items as bicycles, beds and mattresses, blankets, money, bags of maize and kitchen utensils among others.

The DC has however expressed sadness at the increased cases of fire incidents in the area and has since implored members of the community to prevent such problems by making fire breaks around their premises.

And speaking to ZANIS in Mwense, one of the victims Moses Kaoma said owners of the affected houses were not at home when the incident happened.

They have since appealed to government to help them with temporal shelters adding that they cannot renovate their houses now because grass in the bush has been burnt.
