A fire incident that occurred in Tudun Murtala quarters, in Nasarrawa Local Government Area of Kano state, has killed four members of a family of five people and injured many others. The injured are reportedly receiving treatment at a hospital.
The midnight fire was ignited by a keg of petrol stored in one of the buildings.
An eyewitness reportedly said some sympathisers attempting to quell the inferno resorted to using sand due to lack of water.
Mustapha Mohammed Rilwan, Kano state Director of Fire Service, confirmed the incident. He said a firefighter suffered severe burns.
