Mysterious fire has reportedly raised a three-bedroom flat located at World Bank Housing Estate in Umuahia North Local Government Area of Abia State.
While occupants of the residence couldn’t be reached for comments at the time of filing this report, sources in the area told our reporter they could not save anything from their home.
They added that two children who were in the house when the fire started escaped being burnt.
According to sources, there hasn’t been any traceable link to the cause of the fire incident.
They claimed that there was no power supply from the public source during the time of the incident.
The sources disclosed that the damage had already been done before the arrival of the operatives from the State Fire Service.
The incident occurred days after a mysterious fire destroyed goods worth billions of cash at the Umuahia Timber Market.
The State Fire Chief, Mr. Victor Gbaruko could not be reached for comments.
But a source at the state fire service said that it was not surprising that there could be fire incidents, having warned people against keeping anything that could ignite fire incidents in their homes because of the dry season.
