On Tuesday morning, a huge fire brought down Gikomba market. Lots of property was lost in the process, and many businesses crippled. According to the police, the fire started from a section facing Landhies Road at around 3am.

This came just one week after a smaller fire, making one wonder whether there was any relation.

Luckily, there were no major injuries but a few traders sustained some minor injuries as they were trying to salvage what they could.

Despite this calamity, some ‘beautiful’ pictures doing rounds on social media could not escape our attention. From various parts of the city, huge smoke could be seen rising up the sky.
