Two persons who were arrested for their alleged involvement in the Brikama fire incident have been granted bail, Police spokesperson said.

He added: “Their arrest is in connection to the start of the fire and failure to control it.”

When asked whether the two are nurses of Brikama health centre, he responded: “I’m just not sure if they are really. They are residents of the hospital quarters but I can’t tell their designation within the health department.”

According to the Police spokesman, preliminary investigations have revealed that a pile of rubbish was being burnt from the quarters of the hospital around the canteens, which fire spread to cause the disaster at the market.
