Property and woodwork machinery worth millions of dollars were destroyed by a fire at Glen View Area 8 Home Industry Complex along Willowvale Road in Harare last night.

Some of the equipment destroyed in the fire.

This is the fourth time the complex has been gutted by fire in 2019.

This is the fourth time the complex has been destroyed by fire this year.

According to eyewitnesses an electrical fault that occurred last night around 10pm caused the fire resulting in the destruction of wares and machinery including generators and compressors.

Beds, kitchen cupboards, lounge suites, tables, chairs and wardrobes were reduced to ashes.

When The Herald news crew visited the scene Tuesday morning, traders were already working from makeshift structures.
