Both damaged facilities were recently closed as part of the measures of COVID-19 prevention and were yet to be opened at the time of fire outbreak. The motel offers bar, restaurant and lodging services while the city valley market trades in fruits and vegetables.
Faustin Kashugera, the proprietor of City Valley Motel said a big part of the facilities was damaged.
“We are yet to know the causes of the fire outbreak but we saw it coming from the other side of the market. There were no goods in that market,” he said.
“There were so much property damaged by fire in my motel and I don’t know the total value at the moment since we have not yet carried out inventory of the damages,” he said.
The Fire Brigade was at the scene immediately to extinguish the fire. The cause of the fire has not yet been established.
