Fire razes FGC hostel in Kazaure

It took firemen an hour to put out the fire

Raging fire on Saturday burnt a students’ hostel in the Federal Government College (FGC), Kazaure, in Jigawa.

Muhammad Gidado, the Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Corps (NSCDC) in Jigawa, told journalists that the inferno razed down the hostel completely.

Although he did not adduce any reason for the fire outbreak, the commandant said it took fire men more than one hour to put it out so that it did not spread to other buildings.

“It took more than one hour for the NSCDC, police, fire fighters and staff of the college to put out the fire and rescue the students’’, he said.

Mr. Gidado advised people to be extra careful when using fire.
