According to Wandegeya Police Commander, Cesar Tusingwire, the cause of the fire is still unknown pending investigations.
“We are yet to find the real cause of the fire but as police, we played our part and saved the entire building from being razed down,” Cesar said
When we reached the scene, some thugs were breaking into the nearby rooms and taking off with merchandise in the pretext of saving them from fire.
Mr Tusingwire cautioned businessmen and owners of buildings in the city to be vigilant on fire-related issues
“This is a very bad season with lots of fire outbreaks,” he said. “Police has so far recorded three incidences in less than a month”
Kasirye, one of the occupants of the said building dealing in consultancy services expressed concern over the installation of expired fire extinguishers in the building that cannot save the situation in such incidences.”
According to Kasirye, this is a very common scenario in most of the city buildings. He asked police and those concerned to work on such issues if they are to save business in the city from fire incidences.
