Four shops on Sabon titin kwado in Katsina metropolis have been razed down by fire on Monday (yesterday) afternoon.
Eye witnesses who were at the scene of the fire told newsmen that the fire started from a gas cylinder shop and spread to three near by shops.
Efforts made by good samaritans before the arrival of men of the fire service could do little to mitigate the raging inferno.
Recall that this is the sixth fire outbreak experienced in the state in less than a month.
These fire incidents included at Katsina Central Market, Magamar Jibiya Market, Funtua Market, Umaru Musa Yar’adua University and Arabic Teachers College.
