One of the fire victims, Mr Kale Yero, said a tanker driver who passed through the road in the midnight sighted the fire and alerted the residents of the area.

He said it took some officials from the state Fire Service over four hours before they could bring the raging fire under control in the early hours of Monday.

The Head of Fire Prevention at the state Fire Service, Alhaji Abdulwaheed Yakub, told NAN that the fire could have been caused by an electrical fault.
