Tanker carrying fuel caught fire while trying to discharge fuel at Bonimas Filling Station by Orji Junction Okigwe road Owerri close to my house.
The fire service people came one hour after, but were unable to stop the fire with one tank filled with water. As am typing to you guys the tanker, the filling station and some part of the building by the side of the filling station are still burning.
Please let the government help and stop people from building fuel station around residential areas. Just imagine how the owner of this fuel station went and build this in between a school and someone’s residential house . This is man made fire unable to stop by the fire service people imagine how hell fire will be.
All the same I thank God nobody died.
