The Kaduna State Fire Service said it recorded 33 deaths from 252 fire incidents between January and September across the state.

The State Fire Service Director, Paul Aboi, disclosed this during an interview at the state capital on Friday.

Aboi told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the service rescued 15 persons, while four persons sustained injuries within the same period.

“The service saved property worth about N3.4 billion, while others worth N2.2 billion were destroyed within the period under review,’’ he said.

Aboi stated that the fire service, working in synergy with the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), recorded 21 auto-fire accidents with some deaths.

The director said the service did its best to reduce fire outbreaks by educating residents on fire safety measures.

He advised residents to observe simple safety procedures to stem the tide of fire outbreaks in all parts of the state.
