The Kano State Fire Service on Wednesday confirmed a fire outbreak that destroyed upper section of a female hostel at the Kano University of Science and Technology, Wudil.

Alhaji Saidu Mohammed, the State Fire Service spokesman, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano that the incident occurred on Tuesday night as a result of high voltage.

He said that a total of 30 rooms, 20 toilets and four kitchens were completely razed.

“On receiving the information, we quickly sent some of our personnel and fire fighting vehicles to the scene at 10:21p.m. to quench the fire,’’ he said.

Mohammed, however, said that no life was lost to the fire, noting that students were still at home because of the lecturers’ strike
