Togo: New fire breaks at Port of Lomé

(Togo First) - A fire broke recently at the Port of Lomé. The incident took place on the night of March 23 to 24, according to the Ministry of Economy and Coastal Protection. 

The source informed that the fire lasted two hours. However, it added that firefighters intervened, and an abandoned store belonging to the Office Togolais des Recettes (OTR) was hit.

While no casualties were reported, the fire’s origin remains unknown.

In July 2021, dozens of tons of cotton stored in warehouses on the port platform were destroyed in a fire. Later in February 2022, a fire ravaged several vehicles on display at the Société Libano-Togolaise de Transport (SLTT) yard. Also, two weeks ago the Ministry of Maritime Economy confirmed the explosion of a Togolese vessel.
