The Comptroller of Abia State Fire Service, Victor Gbaruko, has said that the state recorded 350 fire outbreaks in 2020 and five incidents as of January 7, 2021.

Gbaruko disclosed this on Sunday in Aba, Abia State while reviewing the activities of the fire service last year and the plans to combat fire outbreaks in 2021.

He said the 350 fire outbreak in 2020 was less than 390 recorded in 2019.

He blamed the fire outbreaks to the activities of animal hunters, who, he said, set bushes on fire when chasing animals.

Gbaruko, however, warned filling station owners not to discharge liquefied gas from tankers when petrol motor spirit (PMS) dispensers are on.

He also cautioned residents against keeping gas cylinders inside kitchens, noting that most fire incidents at homes were caused by gas explosions.
