A mysterious fire early yesterday gutted ‘The Young Shall Grow’ bus terminal/warehouse, located at New Cemetery Road, Onitsha, Anambra State, destroying about ten luxury buses worth over N600 million.

The fire was said to have started at about 3am. No life was lost but many sustained minor injuries while trying to rescue some buses and other property of the company at the scene of the incident. The workers, who were alerted while the fire was raging, were said to have been able to prevent it from affecting the warehouse, with the help of men of Fire Service, who later came when the buses had all burnt beyond repair.

As at 7am when this reporter visited the scene of the incident, the fire had been put off, but the wreckage of the buses littered the compound. Some sympathisers were seen taking photographs of the buses from outside the compound while others gathered in groups discussing the fire incident and bemoaning the great loss.

Efforts to speak with the staff of the company proved abortive However, an eye-witness, who said he works for the company but did not want his name mentioned, said the fire started at about 3:30 a.m. He said more vehicles would have been rescued but the drivers left with the keys of the luxury buses thereby making it impossible for those around to remove the buses. He added that each of the buses cost about N60 million, and therefore their loss totalled N600 million.
