An eyewitness said the 20-year old woman was with her husband, Amend Agada, in the kitchen when the incident happened.
The husband, however, escaped as he quickly jumped out of their wooden house but his wife had already been engulfed by the raging inferno.
But another eye witness said she kept fuel in her kitchen and was pouring fuel to sell to a customer when the fire started.
Her body was later removed from the ruins of the fire and placed in a casket for burial at her home town in Benue State.
Edo spokesman, DSP Chidi Nwabuzor, said he was yet to be briefed on the incident as of the time of filing this report.
