Incredible; onlookers derive joy from victim’s loss

Tuesday, August 28, 2018

It was a bad afternoon for owner of a blue coloured car with plate numbered: BJL 0766 J which caught fire at Cooperative Bus Stop area and burned to ashes.

Flames suddenly engulfed the jeep car believed to be coming direct from Banjul and within few minutes, it became a blaze that spread beyond the capacity of the owner whom no one could identify among the crowd.

Onlookers could not establish the cause of fire incident, which happened at approximately 4:05 p.m., attracting onlookers who were taking snappy pictures of the incident rather than rending a helping hand to the victim to quench the fire.

However, The Gambia Fire and Rescue Service who arrived at the scene at around 4:13p.m. could do very little as the fire had left the car a total wreckage.
