Ughelli main market is on fire. Traders were seen trying to salvage their goods. The market was reported to went up in flames early Tuesday morning, November 19.
The cause of the fire which could not be ascertained as at press time destroyed shops and properties running into hundreds of thousands of naira.
It took the arrival of the delta state fire service to stop the ravaging fire from spreading to other parts of the market even as eyewitnesses lamented nonchalance and I don’t care on the part of the fire service workers.
