Fire Destroys Several Buildings In Weala  

By Richard D. Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, April 8 (LINA) - A fire outbreak in Weala, Cinta Township in upper Margibi County has left several buildings and cash and goods valued at over US$200,000 destroyed.

The fire incident occurred on Wednesday, leaving the biggest provision store and other smaller ones destroyed.

Speaking to the Liberia News Agency in Weala, the owner of the store gutted by the fire, Mr. David Kollie, said the fire was caused by an electrical short circuit from a fan in his apartment attached to the store.

Kollie said upon hearing sparks from the fan, he quickly ran inside to check and in the process decided to go to the generator room but it was too late because the entire building was engulfed in heavy smoke.

During the incident, the China Chongqing International Construction Company, (CICO) went on the scene with its water truck to help contain the blaze but could not quench the fire.

Kollie said all that he has worked for over 18 years got destroyed by the fire.

He is calling on the National Disaster Commission to come to his aid as he has nothing left to sustain his family.
