About forty National Fire Authority firefighters struggled to control the fire at Atlas Trading Warehouse on Ackland Street in Viria East, Vatuwaqa, this morning.

Four fire trucks were at the fire scene but it was difficult for them to put out the fire.

Firefighters also had difficulties in opening the fire hydrant in front to the burning fire warehouse and when they managed to open the fire hydrant, there was no water.

An eyewitness, Motor Management Service Limited, managing director John Mar said: “The fire started about 7:30 am and someone noticed from the other side of the building and informed me.”

Atlas Trading managing director Navin Chandra was unable to comment on the scene.

More witnesses have already begun posting fresh pictures and videos on social media of the fire as it happens.

Feminist activist Virisila Buadromo Tweeted:
