Fire gut market in Akure, Ondo State



An inferno has reportedly engulfed a market at Oba n’la Junction, Akure Ondo state.

According to SaharaReporters, the fire started inside a small shop around 9:30pm on Sunday as confirmed from an eyewitness.

“We have called the fire service at Alagbaka to help us but unfortunately we have not seen them since then.

“If care is not taken, the fire will spread to other shops stocked with goods and even to people’s houses,” a resident said.

Residents were said to have blocked major roads in the area to avoid further spread of the fire.
