A fire outbreak has rendered over 20 families homeless following the explosion of cooking gas cylinder in Opi Street by fish pond in Ugboroke community, Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State.

The fire incident, which occurred at about 3 pm on Sunday, razed down a makeshift building housing the families.

It was learned that nobody died or sustained injuries from the unfortunate incident which caused serious tension in the area.

It took the prompt intervention of the Delta State Fire Service to quench the fire and prevent the same from spreading to other buildings.

An eyewitness said the cooking gas cylinder exploded when the girlfriend of one of the tenants in the compound was preparing a meal, unaware that the cylinder was leaking.

According to the eyewitness,
Quote
“Before the girl came out from the house, everywhere was on fire. Her boyfriend asked her to lock up and they ran away. By this time, some of the tenants are still in church.”


A pregnant woman carrying a baby, Rose Anthony (victim), said she only came out from the incident with the wrapper on her body.

“Government should help me with accommodation and settle me,”
she said.
