The Kano State Fire Service saved 104 lives and goods worth N260 million from 97 fire incidents in the state in February.
Mohammed, however, noted that nine persons lost their lives in those incidents.
He said that while fire consumed property valued N190 million, the service received 54 rescue calls and 10 false alarms from residents during the period under review.
Mohammed identified the use of substandard electrical materials, use of boiling rings as well as poor handling of electrical appliances and cooking gas, as some of the major causes of fire incidents.
He advised members of the public to stop storing petroleum products in their homes to avert fire outbreaks. (NNN)
