Fire razes shops at Singer market in Kano

On Monday, the Kano State Fire Service confirmed that fire razed some improvised shops and the upper building of the old Savannah Bank at Singer market in Kano.

Its spokesman Saminu Abdullahi said the fire started at about 2:18 a.m.

“We received a distress call at midnight at about 02:18 a.m. from one Sai’du Hamza that there was a fire outbreak at the market which is in Fagge local government area of the state,” the fire service official said.”

Mr Abduallahi added, “On receiving the information, we quickly sent some of our personnel and fire fighting vehicles to the scene of the incident at about 02:22 a.m. to put off the fire so as not to affect other shops.”

He, however, said several temporary shops were entirely razed by the fire, adding that the service was yet to ascertain the cause and the total number of shops affected.
