Although no life was lost in the incident, workers and customers at the filling station were said to have escaped by the whiskers when the fire started.

The station manager, Mr. Okeke Patrick, said the incident occurred when the tanker was discharging its product while customers were being attended to, Guardian reports.

He said:

“We were discharging fuel when suddenly we saw fire. We called the fire fighters immediately and they came after 20 minutes from Nnewi fire station and put out the fire, which burnt the patrol tank and touched the office block but nobody died or got injured.”
