The Kano State Fire Service confirmed that a fire incident on Monday razed some shops, including the upper building of old Savannah Bank at Singer Market in Kano.

A statement by the Public Relations Officer of the Fire Service, Saminu Abdullahi, disclosed that the fire started around 2:18am.

“We received a distress call around 2:18am from a man, Sai’du Hamza, that there was fire a incident at the market in Fagge Local Government Area of the state.

”On receipt of the information, we quickly dispatched some of our personnel and fire fighting vehicles to the scene of the incident around 2:22am to put off the fire so it would not spread to other adjoining shops,” he said.

However, Abdullahi said several temporary shops were completely razed by the fire, adding that the fire service was yet to ascertain the cause and the accurate number of the affected shops.
