The Kano State Fire Service on Friday said six persons have been burnt to death and properties worth N23 million destroyed in fire incidents in the state in September, 2023.

The fire service also disclosed that properties worth N34 million were saved in 21 fire incidents reported in the State.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the service, Saminu Abdullahi, in Kano.

Abdullahi disclosed that 17 lives were also saved within the period under review.

“The service responded to 16 rescue calls and six false alarms from residents of the state,” he said.

The spokesman advised motorists to avoid the use of liquefied petroleum gases (LPG) cylinder in their vehicles and generators to avoid inferno.

“Rather look for Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and cylinder for safety,” Abdullahi said.

He also advised the general public to handle fire with care and continue to clear their drainages to avoid unforeseen circumstances.
