Fire Guts Ntungamo Market destroys property
Fire last night destroyed over 40 market stalls in Ntungamo municipality.
The flames razed mainly kiosks operating as restaurants and also destroyed two video halls in the market commonly known as Bangkok in Cell 8, in Western division, Ntungamo Municipality.
Alex Nkunda, the chairperson of the traders’ association says he learnt of the fire at around 3:00am this morning.
He says the fire spread so fastby the time the police fire crew arrived, they could not save any property.
Some of the traders believe the fire could have been deliberately started by someone with hidden intentions of relocating the traders.
Ntungamo municipality MP, Gerald Karuhanga says the incident was unfortunate as most traders lost money and important documents like National identity cards.
