“The cause of the fire couldn’t be affirmed yet while an investigation is ongoing.

“The service urges residents of the state to always cultivate the habit of switching off their electrical appliances even before bedtime, as this would help prevent the chances of fire outbreaks in their various homes, marketplaces, and offices and also help them to drastically reduce it,” Adekunle stated.
