Jigawa State Directorate of Fire Service says at least two hundred and thirty, 230, persons were killed in different fire incidents between 2015 to 2021, across the State.

This was stated by the State Commissioner for Works and Transport, Engr. Aminu Usman at a bi-weekly Media Engagement Forum organized by the Correspondents’ Chapel of the NUJ, held at Manpower Development Institutes, Dutse.

He said within the six years, the State Fire Service directorate had received over one hundred and thirty, 130, emergency fire calls from different parts of the State.

“From 2015 to date, we have received 130 emergency calls and about 230 human lives were lost, while 45 persons were rescued as a result of fire incidents,” he stated.

The commissioner added that properties worth N205 million were damaged, while over N513m properties were also saved.

He said from the 2015 to date, eight animals were killed, while twenty seven were rescued.

He said most of the fire incidents emanated from electricity and indiscriminate burning of refuse at residential areas and farmlands without control.

Usman warned the people of the State to be extra careful, especially as the harmattan was approaching.
