While the exact cause of the fire is unknown, a source said it could be connected to power surge.

An eyewitness explained that it took the quick response of the university’s fire service for the fire to be put off, noting that none of the bank’s workers had resumed work for the day when the fire started.

The eyewitness said, “The fire incident affected the four new ATMs that were just installed at the bank and also some offices were burnt down by the fire.

“It took the quick intervention of the men of the fire services department of the university before the situation could be brought under control. For some hours members of staff of the bank were unable to gain access into the bank as they were all outside discussing the incident.”
