Fire ruins 35 shops in Kurmin Yan-nama market, Kano

The Kano State Fire Service says 35 temporary shops have been destroyed by fire at Kurmin Yan-nama Market in Kano State.

The spokesman of the service, Saidu Mohammed, confirmed the incident while speaking with newsmen in Kano on Sunday.

He said 27 of the shops were completely razed, while eight were slightly burnt.

“We received a distress call in the early hours of Sunday at about 04:56 a.m. from one Ado Musa that there was fire outbreak at the market.

“On receiving the information, we quickly sent our personnel and firefighting vehicles to the scene of the incident at about 05:03 a.m to stop the fire from spreading to other shops,“ he said.

He advised traders to be more careful and desist from using instruments capable of triggering fire as a way of guarding against future occurrence.

Mohammed also advised residents to keep fire buckets, blankets and extinguishers at home to enable them curtail fire outbreak before calling on the fire service.

Mohammed said the cause of the fire was still being investigated.
