It is only but fitting that we critically look into and analyze the spate of fire incidents on various government infrastructures. The latest government building to join the ‘national inferno spree’ is the Electricity House in Freetown. This building situated at Siaka Stevens Street is the administrative facility of the National Power Authority (NPA) and the Ministry of Energy.
This explains why the general atmosphere in the city was reduced to panic when news broke out on that fateful evening of last week that Electricity House was on fire. It was feared that the incident was going to serve as a major setback to electricity supply in Freetown and its environs.
