An 86-year-old man has been injured in an inferno that gutted a building on Saturday at No.14 Afolayan Street, off Asa Dam road in Ilorin, Kwara State.
It was learnt that the fire was ignited from the cooking of the octogenarian who got part of his head burnt in the process.
Confirming the incident, the Public Relations Officer of the Kwara State fire service, Hassan Adekunle, said the incident occurred when the victim momentarily stepped out to attend to someone while cooking.
