Fire gutts popular market in Asaba




The fire incident

An early morning fire has gutted the popular and ever busy Ogbogonogo Modern Market along Nnebisi Road, Asaba, Delta state, destroying goods worth millions of naira.

The traders, especially the major foodstuff sellers are still counting their losses as a result of an early morning fire that gutted a section of the market.

The inferno which was said to have started at about 7.am consumed the entire livestock section and a section of the tailoring materials.

Chickens, goats and other livestock were roasted while sewing machines, tailoring items and other goods worth millions of naira, were lost to the raging fire.

As at the time of filing this report,  no human casualty, ostensibly as the daily market is usually closed every Tuesday since the outbreak of COVID-19.
