People in the central business district of Harare were terrified after a deadly fire engulfed a building along Cameron Street this afternoon.

The fire erupted in the building housing Callans Furniture in the capital. The cause of the fire is yet to be established. The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP is also yet to reveal the extent of the damage the fire caused.

Videos and images circulating show multitudes of onlookers thronging Cameroon and Charter Street to witness the raging blaze.

The fire was so violent that it emitted black, horrific fumes into the sunny skies, weakening the sunlight. The fire razed down the building and almost spread to the nearby structure. Firefighters swiftly went to put out the fire, but the fiery blaze seemed too strong for them.

Some eyewitnesses assumed the fire was caused by one car parked nearby, exploding as the fire raged on. In one instance, the fire caused shaking explosions so tempestuous that people in the streets ran for their lives.

Zimbabweans on social media expressed sadness while casting doubt on the capacity of the fire brigade to calm the fire along Cameroon Street.

“Fire brigade yauya isina mvura later on ndobva vaenda kundotsvaga mvura. Ma fire horse yacho yaisina presha kudarikwa ne weti yangu yandoita makuseni. Pavaona moto watadza kudzima vabva vatiza.”
