The cause of the fire could not be verified at the time of filing this report.

According to Godwin Ose, who claimed he live in Bazunu Street, disclosed that the fire started when public power supply was restored at about 1.00am on Saturday, 6th May., 2023.

Another source, who preferred to be anonymous, said the fire went out of control as only a few people came out to offer help, saying that most people were already at the comfort of their beds due to the all-night rain. 

The source further said that the Delta State Fire Service came to the scene by 2.00am but were unable to extinguish the fire until a call was put through to the Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC) before the firemen could put out the fire. 

One of the household shop owner who came to the scene fainted, on seeing the level of damage to her shop.

Traders have been seen around counting their losses.
