Electric Line Shock Blazes Kuriftu Adama

An electric line shock caused the fire accident that damaged 24 rooms at a hotel in Adama (Nazareth), a property under Kuriftu Resorts, Tadios Getachew, owner of Kuriftu Resort & Spa, confirmed to Fortune. The town’s Mayor, Adanech Abiebie, has corroborated the cause of the fire.

The fire, which started late in the morning, continued to burn for almost two hours until it was put off by the city’s fire-rescue brigade and the residents of the city, according to Tadios.

“We’re waiting for the results of a forensic investigation to confirm the cause,” said Lemma Haile, security head of the city administration.

The resort has resumed operations with the facilities unaffected by the fire, according to Tadios.
