Cumbane explained that the most important mission of firefighters, shortly after their arrival was to prevent the fire from reaching the supermarket, adding that it had been accompished that was reached.
“The store is intact, the warehouse has suffered a lot, and the operations are over, we are making the aftermath to complete this part and move on to the subsequent phase which is to determine the possible causes of the fire,” Cumbane said.
According to Cumbane, the fire broke out at a time when no one was working. Only one security services employee was in the premises and there is no human damage.
