Bauchi: Residents mourn as two kids die in fire outbreak


The Madina Quarters community in Bauchi was thrown into mourning on Sunday as two children, Zainab Bashir Muhammad (Hibba) and Ummu Salma Bashir, aged 7 and 5, lost their lives in a house fire.

The incident was said to have occurred near Barden Gabas Primary School, close to Tirwun Quarters, within the Bauchi metropolis.

the fire incident occurred just days after two persons lost their lives in a fire outbreak at Maraku village in Zubuki Ward, Itas/Gadau Local Government Area of Bauchi State.

Eyewitnesses told our reporter that the fire outbreak started at about 11:00 am on Sunday.

According to reports, the children’s mother had locked inside the house while she went out, possibly to the market.

Unfortunately, the house caught fire before she came back.

attempts to rescue the children were futile due to the thick smoke and intensity of the flames.

Also, efforts by the state fire department, which visited the scene to contain the fire, were abortive.

However, details remain sketchy as to what led to the fire outbreak but a resident in the Madina Quarters, Usman Abdullahi (Dan Usmanu), who spoke with our reporter at the scene, said it was unusual for the mother to leave her children locked in the house.

Meanwhile, the children have been laid to rest in accordance with Islamic rites.
