Spokesman for Kano State Fire Service, Saidu Mohammed, said the accident occurred at about 8.52 a.m.

“We received a distress call from one Malam Mohammed at about 08.52 a.m that there was a tanker that was gutted by fire on Rano road,” he told NAN.

“On receiving the information, we quickly dispatched our personnel and vehicle to the scene of the incident at about 09.10 a.m to rescue the victims.”
