(Video) Youths save the day during Fire outbreak in Nnewi, Anambra today

All hail to the great youths of Nnewi and Nigeria. They saved the day during the fire outbreak that occurred in Nnewi today. A few days ago, fire gutted a popular multimillion naira spare parts factory in Nnewi.

Nnewi is known as the "Industrial City" of Igboland and Anambra State. Today, a tragedy caught up with the people of Nnewi as fire gutted a popular oil and gas station. According to reports, the fire outbreak took place in the early hours of Friday.

A few days ago, fire outbreak was recorded at GTB Kuto, Abeokuta, Ogun State. According to reports, a few people were burnt to death. Firefighters responded early to the fire outbreak. 

The fire outbreak occurred at New-Oba Road, beside Okuwani, Nnewi-Nnobi road, opposite Ifeanyi Ubah's Football Club House. The fire started from Great V.Max oil and gas filling station and spread round to a few shops. Some people said it's gas leakage but it's not. It's diesel leakage, according to an accurate eyewitness. 

Narrating the story, a eyewitness, Mr. Val said:
"The fire incident started few minutes after 8 am on Friday morning when a big truck was transferring diesel to a smaller truck at the filling station. The hose of a generator they were using to do the transfer was said to have pulled out and the diesel then spread on the generator which started the fire.

“As the fire started, the people at the filling station tried in vain to put it off with the available fire extinguisher. The fire became increasingly high and the driver of the smaller tanker quickly drove off to enable the bigger tanker to also drive out, but before they could complete this process they fire had spread out of the filling station to the road and both sides of the gutters on the road.

"The driver of the big tanker was nearly trapped by the fire, he escaped by whiskers. And the diesel flew along the two drainages burning anything on its way, but the Nnewi Fire Service quickly arrived at the scene, combated the fire and succeeded in putting it off."
