Dawn fire destroys Ho Central Market

Traders at the Ho Central Market are counting their losses as their burnt properties fill refuse containers.

About five stores filled with wares including cosmetics, rubber products and second-hand clothes were completely burnt when a fire swept through the market Wednesday dawn.

The fire service managed to contain the fire to prevent it from further spreading into other shops, reports Volta Region Correspondent, Hubert Yevu-Agbi.Authorities have blamed the inferno partly on the dry harmattan winds.
