“It was discovered that the fire rapidly spread across three blocks that housed auto spare parts traders within the market and were aided by combustible substances stored around the affected locations,” she said.
“The fire was, however, curtailed from further spread to other blocks through the swift professional intervention of firefighters and other emergency responders.
“The situation would demand a thorough and collaborative investigation to ascertain the cause of the fire.
