There were dramatic scenes in Kejetia market on Wednesday as a result of the fire outbreak that occurred there.
Some traders and shoppers ran helter-skelter while others tried to salvage their wares at the onset of the fire late afternoon.
Lady tumbles from top floor of Kejetia Market in a bid to escape fire
Amid the chaos, some persons trapped on the top floor of the storey building were bent on escaping.
They desperately lowered a rope and frantically took turns descending from the second floor.
Per an amateur video sighted by Myjoyonline.com, a woman wearing a green dress started her descent with the help of others.
On her way down to the first floor, she appears to have missed her grip and fell to the floor.
The distraught onlookers screamed as they watched her tumbling down.
However, reports say she sustained some injuries but is alive.
Some of the victims who collapsed due to the smoke were also carried to health facilities nearby.
The part of the market which is under fire is known as ‘Dubai’ where items such as car tires are sold.
JoyNews spoke to a man who was supposedly present in the area where the fire started.
According to the eyewitness, he was purchasing items from a female trader when he heard her radio set’s battery running low.
According to the man, he left his wares briefly with the lady to buy something from another area.
On his return, he saw a little smoke emanating from the trader’s shop.
“The area where she had plugged the radio was where the smoke started from. She had arranged so many things around the electric socket.
