Fire destroyed wares and some other valuable properties in the main market serving Yola Town, one of two in the Adamawa State capital, Yola.

While the city’s biggest market, the Jimeta Modern Market, is located in the Jimeta axis of the capital city, the Yola Town Main Market is the second major market serving as the commercial hub of the Yola South Local Government Area and the environs.

Eyewitnesses said a fire at the Yola Town market started in the early hours of Monday, destroying shops and goods.

They said some of the traders who kept the proceeds of the sales of Sunday now regret not taking their money home.

They said although fire authorities responded quickly enough but the intensity of the inferno made containment tough.

The cause of the fire was yet to be determined by the time this report was filed Monday morning, but people around the market area ruled out any link to electricity as the entire place was in a blackout throughout the time.

No case of human casualty has been reported.

The Adamawa State Deputy Governor, Professor Kaletapwa Farauta, in a sympathy visit to the market just before 10 am Monday, told the affected traders that the government is with them in their tragic moments.
