Daily Trust gathered that the parents of the children were not at home when the incident happened. Details of what caused the fire remains sketchy as residents only said that they only saw smoke coming out of the house.
A resident who simply identified himself as Malam Ibrahim said all efforts to rescue the child failed.
“The boy that died was a minor while his two siblings, a boy and a girl, were seriously injured and rushed to Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital.  What happened was terrible.
“We tried our best to break the door since their parents were not at home at the time of the fire incident but we couldn’t enter because the door was locked. Fortunately,  the two siblings were rescued through the window,” he said.
He said the people could hear the deceased screaming for help, but they could do nothing to help him as the fire had gutted the room. It was further gathered that the parents who later returned fainted out of shock and were rushed to a hospital that night.
