Natural disaster



Happening in old Fadama now.

Tension as sawdust catches fire at old Fadama close to Cole lagoon. The slum town has been suffering from thick smoke from sawdust fire.

It was later realized by the residents to use pumping machine to pull water from the lagoon. And as I'm reporting, the situation has come down a little beat.

According to eye witness, the fire busted midnight due to a waste which was dumped and suspected to have contain naked fire.

In the later development, the care taker has ordered the fire fighters in the community to control the fire before it gets close to the wooden structures. This was emergency summoning of the youth because the fire has encroached almost several meters to the slum community.

About hundreds of the community youths took responsibility to help end the unfortunate spreading fire. Looking at the situation and what the care taker is saying it will be in possible to quench sawdust fire if heavy pouring of water is not discharged.

The fear of the community is unavailable water supply from pipelines due to frequent lights out.
