Photo: Two sisters burnt to death in filling station fire in Osogbo

Two children of the same parents were burnt to
death in a fire outbreak at `Bovas’ petrol station in
Osogbo on Wednesday, News Agency of Nigeria
(NAN) reports. An eyewitness who spoke on
condition of anonymity, told NAN that the victims
were children of the owner of the station. The
mother of the children also suffered burns while
trying to rescue her children.
The Director of the state Fire Service, Mr Michael
Ogundipe, who confirmed the incident while
speaking with journalists said that two lives were
lost in the fire and that the cause of the fire had yet
to be determined.
"We responded immediately we were called
and sent two vehicles. We have equipment
but there was congestion on the road which
slowed down our movement. We met the fire
burning and observed that the construction of
the building did not follow the guideline. There
was no exit route. No fire extinguisher was
there. They would have been able to battle the
fire if they had extinguishers,” he said.
The director said that the remains of the children
had been deposited at the Ladoke Akintola
University of Technology morgue while their mother
was also receiving treatment at the same hospital.
Eyewitnesses said the woman and her three
children were inside the mini market attached to the
filling station when the fire started. The woman was
able to rescue one of the children.
