Fire guts residential building, shops in Ilorin

Date: 2021-11-02

Tragedy struck on Monday morning when fire gutted a residential building and five shops at the Government Reservation Area of Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.

Confirming the incident, the Kwara State Fire Service said that the quick response of firemen to the scene curtailed the spread of the fire and minimised the loss of valuables

Mr Hassan Adekunle, the Head of Department, Media and Publicity of the Kwara Fire Service, said that the fire broke out at 10:35 am at 28 Reservation Road, GRA, Ilorin, following a power surge.

He said that some rooms and shops in the building including many tangible properties were saved from the fire.

Adekunle advised residents in the state to cultivate the habit of switching off their electrical appliances when going to bed at night or whenever leaving home to work, market or church to avert fire disaster.

"This will help them to prevent the chances of fire outbreak should there be a power surge in their homes," he said
