Cases of fire have increased in the Republic of Guinea in recent months. During the day of this Saturday, May 4, 2024, part of the Kounsitel market, a sub-prefecture under the Gaoual prefecture, was ravaged by a fire.

According to the sub-prefect of the area contacted by telephone, even if for the moment there is no official assessment established, the damage recorded is enormous.

“We just finished putting out the fire. However, there was a lot of material loss. However, there was no loss of human life. For the rest, the results have not yet been established. So those in charge of disasters are there, they are working first. The origin of the fire is also not determined at first. The police are there with the gendarmes to carry out the investigation in order to find out the origin”confided captain Saliou Doumbouya.

Located 17 kilometers from Gaoual, the sub-prefecture of Kounsitel is a fairly busy mining area, despite the ban on gold mining.
