Fourteen persons in Tegina town in Rafi Local Government Area of Niger state, on Friday, lost their lives as a result of a fire caused by a petrol tanker. It was gathered that the tanker was conveying petrol from Lagos to Kaduna when the driver lost control and rammed his vehicle into some residential buildings in the town.

Eight houses were completely burnt in the fire that ensued.

The fire claimed the lives of the people who were trapped in the buildings and others selling by the roadside.
