The fire was said to had broken out at about 4 p.m. and some sympathisers rushed to the scene to put out the inferno that raged for more than three hours.
An eye witness, Mrs Aishat Adeniyi, told NAN that she raised alarm when the fire broke out as she was inside the store.
“The fire actually started from the goods packed inside the makeshift store in front of the warehouse before it spread.
“There was no sign of smoke, the only thing I saw was fire raging from the planks, packed inside the makeshift store outside the warehouse where I was sitting and I quickly raised the alarm,” Adeniyi said.
NAN reports that no life was lost during the incident.
“What else do you want me to say in this circumstance, God almighty is all knowing,” said Olorunkemi.
It would be recalled that the owner had suffered a similar fire outbreak in 2014 where property estimated at more than N50 million perished.
Meanwhile, a community leader, Alhaji Atolagbe Suleiman, has renewed call for location of a fire service station in the community.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”10″]
Suleiman, who hold the traditional title of Oloo of Omu-Aran, said the two fire service stations in Ilorin and Offa were far off to rescue people’s property in the event of fire disasters. (NAN)
