PROPERTY worth “millions of US dollars” was destroyed yesterday after fire gutted Splash Paints and Plastics premises along Lyton Road, in Workington, Harare.
In an interview with H-Metro, Brian Hwandi, the human resources manager for the firm, said they had suffered significant loss.
“The fire started when the shrink wrap machine sparked,” said Hwandi.
“There were thinners close to the machine which provided a catalyst for the flame.
“The fire has been going on for close to two hours now and the Fire Brigade is struggling to stop this big flame.
“My boss just left without saying anything, only his children are here, we have lost millions of dollars worth of materials.”
His boss was identified only as Aliff.
