Mongol messenger: A major Ulaanbaatar trade centre, Bombogor (Sapu) burned down during the night of December 16, the largest fire for ten years. The 145m x 63m centre is owned by the Altjin company, and stands in front of the Bakula Rempochi monastery,
The fire was first reported at about 10 pm, and seven city fire units did not manage to extinguish the blaze completely until about 4pm the next afternoon.
The traders lost all their stock, which many had bought on credit for the New Year selling spree, giving cars and apartments as security.
