Fire has swept through COMESA market just 5 days after Soweto Market was gutted in Lusaka in the month of July, which equally marks the anniversary of the devastating City Market fire incident.
Goods worth thousands of kwacha have lost as a result of the fire.
Information obtained suggests that fire started at around 20 hours last evening and the cause has not yet been established.
local government minister Vincent Mwale, provincial Minister Bowman Lusambo, deputy mayor Chilando chitangala and other government officials rushed to the scene as fire fighters were still battling the inferno.
Some affected traders who spoke to 5fm news could hardly express themselves as the tragedy lobbed them out of their source of livelihood.
