ONITSHA (ANAMBRA)- An early morning fire on Monday razed many perfume, ladies wares, cosmetics and wig shops on Kano street near Onitsha main market in Anambra.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the fire, which was said to have started at about 2am., destroyed items and properties worth millions of naira.

Mr Martin Agbili, the state Director of Fire Service, however, said that the fire had been contained.

“The situation is under control, the major fire has been controlled.

“Heavy properties got burnt and lost to the fire incident because of the nature of the commodities being sold in that area, which helped in spreading the fire faster,” he said.

According to him, the fire incident was not within the Onitsha main market and urged residents to  stop escalating the situation.

The director said investigations had commenced to determine the cause of the inferno. (NAN)
