Fire consumed two snack bars in the Brazzaville quarters in Douala 3 subdivision last night. The cause of the fire was attributed to an electrical generator that was powering the facilities due electricity cut. Upon the arrival of the fire brigade who were call 3hours earlier for rescue, the two snack bars including a story building were totally consumed by the flames.

On the arrival of the fire rescue unit to the scene, an angry population that was tired waiting for their intervention aggressed them with stone throws. It needed gunshot in the sky by the police to disperse the angry crowd. “We were tired calling them. It is 3 hours we have been calling for the fire rescue unit, look at when they are coming, the buildings are completely burned” an angry inhabitant spoke to the press. They said the fire started at 6pm but the rescue unit arrived the scene at about some minutes to 10pm. The population also accused the fire brigade to have come without water to extinguish the flames.

Talking to the head of the fire brigade unit he refuted the accusations, saying “It is impossible, we cannot go for intervention without water. It is like a soldier going to war with a gun without bullets”.  He stressed the fact that it was the second time they were attacked in that neighborhood. There was a lot of material damage register in the incident, thank God there was no loos of life.
