Narinjara

A fire broke out in Myoma Market in Minbya in the evening on Saturday (12th of November 2011) and gutted almost all the shops in the market.

The fire is said to have started around 7 pm and continued with blaze-busters until 12 pm in the market panicking people living in the nearby residential wards who vacated their houses and ran away.

“I do not know how the fire started, but I started to notice the fire around 7 pm when I could hear the people shouting ‘fire, fire’….I rushed to bundle and vacate all valuables from my house”, said a housewife who is living nearby the market.

“The fire was continuing with fierce blazes and could not be put out until 12 pm and gutted almost all the shops in the market.”

However she said she did not notice if the fire-engines came to put out the fire.

Narinjara has contacted the office of the fire-brigade in the town over telephone, but failed to get any answers from the office.

Another resident living nearby the market said the fire started from an electrical accessories shop in the market.

“I do not know how the fire started, but it started from an electrical accessories shop in the market and was worsened by the diesel and petrol shops also situated in the market. It gutted almost all other shops that sell clothes, electrical accessories, engine parts, utensils and dry fish as well”, said the resident.

According to the local residents, Myoma market is the biggest market in Minbya and the fire losses are estimated at about a thousand million kyat.
