Tobacco worth thousands of dollars was reduced to ashes after a Swift haulage truck caught fire this morning.

The truck which was on its way from Mvurwi blew into flames near Concession railway line burning everything with eyewitness Benedict Wandiona Chagumuka confirming that it could have been a case of a mechanical fault.

“ I can confirm that a Swift truck which was carrying tobacco bales worth of thousands of dollars was reduced to ashes by fire.

“ The fire started from the trailer and its suspected to be from the exhaust fumes. Efforts to rescue the horse were fruitless too so the whole truck and tobacco bales were all gutted by the fire. “As a fellow transporter it is a painful thing to watch, “ said Chagumuka.
