Though the cause of the fire as at now is not known, residents think the electric power which was restored after an outage
which had been experienced in the market all day was the likely cause of the fire. It took a combined team of the anti-robbery police men attached to Allen Avenue Junction, men of the State fire service and residents to put out the fire which had razed almost a section of the market.
