The Kano State Fire Service says it saved eight lives and property worth N31 million from 25 fire incidents recorded in July.
This is contained in a statement issued by the public relations officer (PRO) of the service, Saminu Abdullahi, on Saturday in Kano.
Mr Abdullahi disclosed that, however, three persons lost their lives, and property worth N14 million was destroyed by fire during the period under review.
“The Service responded to 11 rescue calls and four false alarms from residents of the state,” he said.
The spokesman advised motorists to avoid the use of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in cylinders in their vehicles and generators to avoid an inferno.
He urged them to rather look for and use Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) in cylinders for safety.
Mr Abdullahi also advised the general public to handle fire with care and continue to clear their drains to avoid unforeseen circumstances.
