“We believe it was caused by power surge somewhere in the market, because there was no one around when it started.”

The source added that the fire would not have wrecked much havoc if the men of the Ondo State Fire Service had come on time after a distress call was put across to them.

Another source narrated that some of the affected traders had just stocked their shops in preparation for the Christmas period.

To this end, the affected traders have appealed to the state government and the National Emergency Management Agency to come to their aid.
