A FIRE of unknown origin has destroyed the Mohammed and Son Trading storage bond located at Lot Nine, Felicity, East Coast Demerara (ECD).

The Guyana Chronicle understands that a quick response by the Guyana Fire Service resulted in the fire being contained to the concrete bond.

According to an employee, the bond stored millions of dollars in flammable stocks. It was also related that employees were alerted of the fire, on Monday, while at work and, upon their exit, observed a cloud of black smoke emanating from behind the building.

Firefighters reportedly worked late into the night to completely extinguish the fire, and there were no reported injuries or loss of life.
