Fire razes Kano market, Three Jigawa communities

THREE communities in Jigawa State’s Kiyawa Local Government Area (LGA) were destroyed by fire.

The fire reportedly destroyed houses, cattle, farm produce, and other goods in the Kiyawa LGA communities of Malamawar Dangoli, Karangi, and Kwalele.

According to eyewitnesses, the fire started when a gust of wind blew a traditional cooking stove on a thatched house.

In a similar occurrence, 21 stores were destroyed in Kano State’s Rimi Market.

The arrival of the Director General of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Mustapha Habib, and the Deputy Governor of Jigawa provided some relief.

Fires outward have become more regular in markets around the country, and with inadequate emergency response, scores of dealers have suffered massive losses.
