“By the time they came, the fire had reduced everything into a rubble. That’s why we drove the fire fighters away. You can see that all the 24 flats have been completely burnt. We could not salvage anything,” Martina Undie, another resident said.
Undie said a man who was sleeping at the time of the incident “got some serious burns on his body” and was in hospital. Charred household items including stoves, fridges, and television sets littered the area.
