Two Children Killed As Fire Burns Down Two Bedroom Flat In Kano State

Fire Outbreak In Kano State Kills Two Children

Two children were found dead after a fire broke out in a two-bedroom flat at Sharada, Ja’en Yamma, in Kano State capital today.

The spokesman of the State Fire Service, Saidu Mohammed, who confirmed the incident  to newsmen in Kano, noted that the victims were aged four and seven years.

“We received a distress call in the early hours of this morning (Monday) from one Malam Bello Tukur at about 2:09 a.m. that there was a fire outbreak at a dwelling house.

“Upon receiving the information, we quickly dispatched a fire engine to the scene at about 2:15 a.m, to bring the fire under control,’’ he said.

This is coming a month after fire engulfed one room and seven shops at Weatherhead Road, SabonGari in the state capital of Kano state, Naija News reports.

According to Mohammed, the parents of the children had run out of the house in search of help from neighbours when the fire started, but efforts made to retrieve the children were not successful.

He said, however, that the firemen later handed over the corpses of the two children to the Police after putting off the fire, adding that investigation had commenced to determine the cause of the incident.

The fire service spokesman advised residents to be more careful in using anything that could easily trigger fire to avert such a disaster.
