Fire on Friday gutted the popular Bayelsa State wholesale market known as Swali-Market in Yenagoa, the state capital, destroying items worth several millions of naira in the process.

The cause of the fire is not yet known but there are reports of looting ongoing at the place. 

Efforts to get firefighters to combat the inferno proved unsuccessful, leaving people around to improvise in trying to put out the fire.
