Fire edit

On 20 July 2012, a fire broke out in The Tide's main building, damaging significant portions of the establishment, including the General Manager's office, Credit Control Unit, Administration General office and Board Room. Although no injuries or deaths were reported, much of the company's equipment and staff documents were destroyed. According to a statement from the General Manager Mr. Celestine Ogolo, the fire started at around 2.00a.m and quickly took over the highest floor of the building where his office was stationed. Temporary workspaces were later provided to staff whose offices were affected by the fire.[2][3]
