Fire Hits Ivory Coast's Treasury

A fire that broke out at the Ivory Coast's treasury in Abidjan, destroying a large number of financial documents, has now been contained.

The fire that started on Tuesday damaged several floors of the building before it was brought under control, the Associated Press reported.

Firefighters have refused to speculate on the cause of the blaze.

Last month, the Central Bank of West African States cut off incumbent President Laurent Gbagbo's government from Ivorian accounts in support of Alassane Ouattara, who is regarded by the UN as the winner of the controversial presidential election of November 2010.'
