The fire which started at about 3am on Tuesday could not be  quenched for several hours by men of the state fire service..

Malam Umaru Shehu, a neighbour of one of the victims who lost his life in the incident, said the deceased has struggled to save himself from the inferno but all to no avail as he was finally over powered by smoke.

The victim who is a local Islamic religious teacher, Malam Jamilu Musa  Zaria, died along with his wife Yusra and their three children while trying to  escape from the ravaging fire.

Shehu urged the state government to establish more fire fighting stations and equip them with modern fire fighting vehicles and gadgets to prevent losses during fire outbreaks.
