Mystery fire renders 150 homeless By Ken Douglas

About 150 persons have been rendered homeless after a mystery fire gutted their residence, including commercial buildings, along Mbieri-Atta road in the Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo State.

Property lost in the inferno include television sets, fans, wall clocks, mattresses, clothing materials, wrappers, furniture, phones, cash as well as cooking utensils worth millions of naira.

When our correspondent visited the scene of the disaster, Mr Peter Ozuruigbo of Amakohia, Ebom-Mbieri thanked God that no lives were lost.

He said that the incident occurred at 8am on the fateful day.

Mr Ozuruigbo said that he took his daughter to a hospital for treatment and on his return, he discovered to his greatest astonishment that fire had consumed his house and the property therein.

The cause of the inferno was not immediately made known.
