Fire has swept through Buteko Market in Mufulira destroying property worth millions.

Mufulira Mayor Gift Mushinge has confirmed this to News Diggers! in an interview.

“Yes, I can confirm that Buteko market was on fire. The damage is extensive and millions of property lost. The damage is way too extensive. We have worked through the night to stop the fire. For now, we have instituted a committee that will shortly give an update on the damage and property lost. We will also give later an update on what caused the fire and what time it started. But for now I can say the damage so extensive,” said Mushinge.
