Goods worth millions of dirham have been destroyed in a Tuesday afternoon fire incident at shops located in the Rcif groceries market in the old city of Fez, a city in north central Morocco.

Those around the scene of the incident said that the fire consumed a number of shops and their equipment. The expensive wooden decorations that furnish the market space contributed to the fires’ fast spread.

Bab Rcif is one of the historical monuments in the old medina of Fez.  Located in a key location in the city, the centuries-old gate represents a fundamental element in Fez’s history and architecture.

Fez’s authorities and civil protection agency mobilised first respondents and firefighters to extinguish the fire.

Civil protection arrived on time to ensure the fire doesn’t spread to other parts of the market and from affecting the nearby Bab Al-Awwad market’s shops.

The cause of the afternoon fire is yet to be established. Local authorities launched an investigation into the cause of the fire.
