Karu market: Fire decimates shops

An early morning fire yesterday destroyed over 10 shops at the Karu Market.
Witnesses said the fire broke out at about 1:00am in a textile shop inside the market.
The shop owner in which the fire started, Malam Adamu, told our reporter that it might have been caused by power surge.
Adamu said the fire burnt down his wrappers and laces and that he was unable to salvage anything. He said that the fire spread to nearby shops and burnt them down.
He lamented that when men of the fire service came to the scene, they could not put out the fire because they claimed they did not have water.
Another victim of the fire incident, Abdullahi Ya’u, said he just
returned from Lagos with new goods when the incident happened and that all the cosmetics in his shop were burnt to ashes.
“I came back from Lagos two days ago and now my shop is burnt down; how do I start?” he stated.
