Fire destroys 12 shops in Kuajok

A huge fire has razed twelve shops to the ground in Kuajok’s main market, Warrap state. The incident did not result in any injuries.

Joseph Awet, the chairman of the state chamber of commerce, told Radio Tamazuj from Kuajok that the fire broke out in the one of the stores and quickly spread to others nearby. 

Citizens tried to control the fire through traditional means as the region lacks fire engines but were unable to prevent the damage.

Awet estimated that there are considerable property losses.
