By Bruce Asemota August 3, 2020

A fire outbreak at the Brikama central market yesterday destroyed about 47 shops or canteens dealing in cooking utensils, second hand clothing, plastics, food, tailoring and some warehouses for petty traders.

According to eyewitnesses, the fire started around 5:30 am on Sunday.
It has not yet been officially explained how it started but people familiar with the area said it might have been caused by an electric spark from a nearby pole which often sparks fire intermittently whenever there are heavy winds in the area.

The chief executive officer, Brikama Area Council, Modou Jonga disclosed that the multi-sector committee which was set up to investigate the earlier fire incident in May has been tasked to investigate this particular one too and come up with recommendations to avoid a recurrence.

He appealed to individuals, government and philanthropists to come to the aid of the victims.
“Whilst we continue to investigate the cause of the fire, we wish to assure that we are in solidarity with them [victims] in this difficult period,” he concluded.

The Gambia Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) in partnership with the Gambia Fire and Rescue Services has on Wednesday 26th May, 2022 concluded two-day training on fire safety and the operation of fire extinguishers for the newly recruited Petroleum Inspectors of the Authority.

The training which commenced on Tuesday is intended to equip the Petroleum Inspectors with the requisite knowledge and technical know-how in putting out fire and fire-related issues.

The training also aims to enhance regulatory capacity in aspects of inspection and monitoring across the country.

Speaking at the training session at PURA Headquarters, Mr. Malamin Darboe, Director of HR at PURA implored the participants to take the training seriously and drive maximum value from the presentations.

According to him, the training was necessitated due to the proliferation of petrol stations in the country, which made it prudent to train PURA inspectors in the areas of fire safety.

“You will eventually be equipped and be able to work diligently in your field. To save life and property is critical to your job as Petroleum Inspectors,” Darboe stated.

He also thanked the Gambia Fire and Rescue Services for a long-standing partnership PURA continues to enjoy over the years.

The lead trainer was Lamin S. Jadama of the Gambia Fire and Rescue Services. The training features fire hazards and risk, classification of fire, handling and usage of fire extinguishers, emergency evacuation procedures and practical firefighting.

(Minister Fatou Kinteh Sanyang)

Eye Witness information gathered by Trumpet Newspaper has it that two persons were injured when two electricity meters at the GACH Fatou Golden Plaza Building housing the Ministry of Children, Gender and Social Welfare caught fire and burnt to ashes causing pandemonium and rendering the entire Ministry handicapped.

The said two incidents happened on Tuesday 7th and Friday 10th June 2022, respectively, during working hours when the two meters caught fire. The staffs of the Ministry were seen running helter shelter for their lives. The said building according to sources does not have an emergency exit doors for incidents like such causing scrambling at the only entry and exit door.
(GACH CEO Jawara)

The first meter that caught fire was the one supplying power to the Department of the Children affairs and on Friday the Minister’s own office meter also caught fire at the time Minister Fatou Kinteh Sanyang was arriving at work. It was also said that both the Permanent Secretary and Deputy Permanent Secretary were arriving at work when they found their staff outside in a panic mood.

One of sources said, “Since last week there is no work taking place at the Ministry, all we do is sit and idle in and out of the office without electricity to do our work. We are all frustrated and scare to even enter the building because is not safe if another meter will caught fire. We are lucky that our offices are located at the first floor, if it is at the third floor many people would have been injure or there might be loses of life”.

The GACH building along the Bertil Harding Highway call Fatou Golden Plaza is owned by Abubakary Jawara a Gambia businessman, also houses the GACH global trading company at the third floor whiles the Ministry of Children, Gender and Social Welfare is located at the first floor of the building.

==========

By Nelson Manneh on 13Th July

The Councillor of Bartez Ward, Serrekunda, Karim Darboe on Tuesday 12th July 2022 informed this medium of the recent fire incident that ravaged religious materials and partially burnt the Mosque in Serrekunda.

Karim Darboe who was not able to establish the cause of the fire incident said as a councillor he was called and informed that there is a fire incident at the market and when he went there, he met that the fire had caused a lot of damage to the Mosque.

(There is an empty space within the complex of the Mosque and some of the vendors who sell religious stuff around the Mosque normally park their materials there,” he said.

The councillor of Bartez Ward said almost all these materials that were packed by the vendors at the said place were consumed by the fire.

He said this is the first time such has happened. “We have been hearing a lot of fire disasters within Serrekunda market but this type of fire incident has not been registered in my ward. I was surprised to see a Mosque and religious stuff get burned.”

He said that the mosque committee is still investigating the matter.

This reporter visited the Mosque but could not talk to any of the committee members because there was a funeral there at the time.

Maimuna Sanneh one of the vendors who sells beside the Mosque said the fire incident was a surprise to them because this had never happened.

“I have never heard of an incident where a Mosque catches fire. When I was informed, I came and saw what happened,” she said.

This vendor said many holy materials including Quranic books were destroyed by the fire incident.
