Kakata City Mayor Concerned About Continuous Fire Outbreaks

By Richard Baysah, Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, March 5 (LINA) – The Acting Mayor of Kakata City has expressed concern about the continuous outbreak of fire in the city.

Mayor Eddie Murphy said the city has in less than a week experienced two fire outbreaks that claimed the lives of two persons.

The fire claimed the lives of five-year-old Joejoe Sannoh and Abraham Diabblah, 11, in the Ben-la and Vai Town communities in the city of Kakata.

Mayor Murphy told the Liberia News Agency Wednesday that due to the continuous fire outbreaks, he was consulting with his councilmen to issue a decree containing guidelines that could curb fire incidents.

He pointed out that when such decree is passed, its enforcement will be done gradually, while providing public awareness on why the decree was issued.

Meanwhile, the Commander of the Liberia National Fire Service Margibi County detachment is calling on citizens of the county to be careful how they use candles in their homes.

Colonel James Freeman said his detachment has carried out series of public awareness campaigns on the danger of the use of flammable items in homes, but to no avail. 

Col. Freeman said he has used community radio stations to carry out the awareness, and expressed frustration that residents were not taking them seriously.

He appealed to the UNMIL Quick Impact Project to help construct a fire station in the county, noting that land has been provided by county for that purpose.
