Somalia: Fire engulfs Mogadishu biggest market

A huge fire has engulfed parts of Mogadishu’s biggest market in the Somali capital, razing commercial shops and food stores on Saturday morning, a witness and police said.

A witness said firefighters arrived to put out the destructive fire after many business stalls in the market were reduced to ashes by the inferno.

The fire which was caused an electric shock in a restaurant has rapidly spread to several parts of the market, including Abdalla-Shideye and sent plumes of smoke into the air.

No human causalities from the inferno have so far been reported.

Mogadishu which has a small fire brigade has seen series of inferno incidents, which largely caused property losses in a city which is recovering from decades of war.
