WARRI — TRAGEDY struck, yesterday at Ajamimogha, Warri, Delta State, when a midnight inferno allegedly caused by a generating set, consumed a 37-year- old man, his wife, a six-month-old baby girl and their three years old daughter.

The man, Mr. Nuhu Egbunu, an Igala from Kogi State, was said to have hosted his town union’s meeting on Sunday and went to bed late, with his generator on, until the unfortunate incident.Neighbours saidthe fire started at about 12 midnight.

Narrating how he narrowly escaped death, Mr. Godwin Menetie, said he was woken up by the persistent knocks on the wooden partition separating his room and that of the deceased family, who he suspected must have been choked by the carbon monoxide from the generator and were perhaps struggling with death already.

He said when he came out and saw the fire, he had to rescue his family first while shouting for help like others, who were busy evacuating their children and belongings to safety also.

Vanguard gathered that though men from the fire service came on time, they had just little water, which could not put out the flame even with the efforts by hundreds of youths from the community.

By the time the inferno subsided, two buildings made of zinc and wood had been reduced to rubbles. The over 50 inhabitants of the buildings now quartered at the community’s town hall.

When Vanguard visited the scene, large crowd of sympathisers were seen weeping and lamenting the death of the young couple and their two children.

Meanwhile, their charred remains had been taken back to their home state, Kogi, for proper burial by their relations
