Sympathisers were said to have put a call to the State Fire Service, who eventually contained the inferno.

As at the time of filing this report, no contact had  been established with the driver of the burnt vehicle or the owner of the goods to determine the extent of loss, however.

A sympathiser said, “It’s a fairly huge loss which ought not to have occurred had our people reasoned very well before embarking on retrogressive actions such as this one.”
