Widespread speculations as to the cause of the fire, was put to rest with the Ministry issuing a release, stating that the fire was caused by an electrical fault on the complex. Workers at the scene, during the course of the incident say they were performing muslim prayers, when they heard an unusual sound and then smoke billowed from the building. The old building which was engulfed by fire is part of the Medical Stores complex which the Ministry of Health stores medical drugs and other paraphernalia. The main store located about 200 metres from the fire which holds the Free Health Care drugs and other 14 buildings including UNICEF Country Office were left intact. The affected building is located at the front of the complex where there are two other old buildings. Speaking to some of the workers, they commended the National Fire Force for their timely intervention and the efforts put in containing the fire and preventing a conflagration. According to the workers, one of the saved old buildings nearly caught fire sometime ago, which was also due to an electrical fault.

Senior officials of the Ministry of Health took the Press on a conducted tour of the complex including the store where all the Free health care drugs are stored while explaining that the burnt-out store contained non-essential drugs except for a very small quantity for Lumley Health Centre. The Minister of Health Miatta Kargbo who was on the scene explained to reporters that the building was an old World War 2 prison and that most of the drugs in it were meant to be destroyed after being collected nationwide apart from the small quantity for Lumley Health Centre. She however said that they are waiting for the full report on the cause of the fire from the National Fire Force after their investigations. Tuesday March 10, 2014
