The Cameroon Embassy Building in the Hague Netherlands has been ravaged by flames over the weekend. The fire which generated from a yet to be established source at about 4:30am Saturday caused very extensive damage to the building including equipment and other properties within the embassy.
Authorities say the fire was accidental and no casualties were recorded as no one was present when it started. It was thanks to the Netherlands rescue soldiers and police that the flames came under control in a very short period of time.
Her excellency the Ambassador in charge of the Embassy, Mrs Odette Melono has assured Cameroonians that she is doing everything to ensure that both the embassy and the consular services resume immediately as possible to avoid any service interruption to the public; this implies the speedy repair of damages and the replacement of embassy properties and equipment to enhance fast resumption of full services.
