Somalia: Fire kills two as it sweeps through Mogadishu’s Main Market

MOGADISHU, January 11, 2019 (Hornnews) — At least two people have been killed and dozens of others have been wounded when a huge fire engulfed the main Bakara Market in the Somali capital Mogadishu on Friday.

The cause of the overnight inferno is still unknown.  According to witnesses the conflagration has swept rapidly through the market and consumed buildings, shops, food stores and other properties worth millions of dollars.

Somalia  which is recovering from decades of war has no effective fire brigade that can immediately put out of fires in the city, however rescue workers and fire-fighters have finally  managed to extinguish the blaze after several hours of destruction.
