Houses, Shops Burnt As Petrol Tanker Explodes In Yola

A fire disaster occurred in the early hours of today in Yola, Adamawa State, and properties worth millions of naira were razed by the inferno.

The petrol tanker with registration number YLA 23 XM, was laden with fuel and it reluctantly exploded while negotiating Maidoki roundabout, near PZ Industrial Layout.

Many shops and properties were caught up in flames at the scene of the fire incident.

There were no casualties in the inferno, but multi-million naira properties were reportedly destroyed, leading to colossal loss.

A victim of the fire outbreak and owner of some of the properties razed by the explosion, Mr. Femi Williams, asserted that over 20 shops went up in flames, destroying properties worth over N35m.

He added that two of his vehicles and a drilling machine were adversely damaged by the inferno.

Federal and State fire service personnel arrived at the scene of the fire incident, as well as security operatives, to put the raging fire out and also to maintain public order and serenity.

The accident restricted vehicles from plying the road, as a result of heavy traffic and a great number of motorists, around the scene of the fire incident.
