On 5 October 2015, at around 2:00pm, it was reported that a huge fire had broken out at Camp Yabassi, located around the New Bell neighbourhood, Douala. According to CRTV, nine homes were affected – burnt by the fire, and three children aged 5 and two aged 3 died!
When the fire started, local residents tried their best to to stop the fire from spreading. Unfortunately, due to limited sources, the fire quickly spread to adjacent houses. The National Corps of Firefighters got there after 9 houses had already been destroyed and 3 children had died.
May the souls of the dead RIP.Amen
