According to the spokesman, the three shops affected by the fire are made up of two temporary shops and a main shop.

“The fire service received a distress call from one Salisu Mu’azu at about 4:24p.m.

“On receiving the information, we quickly sent our rescue team to the scene at about 4:27p.m. to stop the fire from spreading to other shops.

“Two temporary shops were completely razed down, while the other shop was slightly burnt,” he said.

He, however, said the cause of the fire was still unknown, but that investigation had begun.
