Villagio Fire Damage From Above
Here’s an aerial look at Villaggio mall taken from the Torch Doha, showing that the roof has been taken off as men work to repair the damage caused by the May 28 fire that killed 19 people, including 13 children, four teachers and two firefighters.
The mall has been closed for the last three months. There have been reports that it is close to opening, but our sources now tell us that it failed to pass another Civil Defense inspection last week.
According to one manager:
They gave the mall 3 weeks for the next check.
The mall from inside is so clean and ready even the food court is ready but as I said they need to match the Civil defense standards.
It is unclear as to what aspects of the mall have yet to be brought up to code.
