Tragedy struck in the wee hours of yesterday at Bawo road, Hausawa quarters, in Tarauni local government area of Kano State, when fire  burnt a family of six to death.

The fire outbreak killed one Isaiah Jonathan, his wife, his three children, including a new born baby and the younger sister of his wife. According to an eyewitness, the fire incident started from the sitting room and prevented the deceased and his family members from coming out of the house.

Narrating further how the incident occurred, the eyewitness said they were woken up when they heard the deceased calling for help. “When we heard some noise at the early hours, we thought robbers have visited us. But when we came out, we saw that fire was burning a part of the house and it was difficult to put out. We saw them trying to pull out the burglary proof. They couldn’t find ladder to get to their rescue,” he said.

Confirming the incident, the Kano State Police spokesman, DSP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, said “at about 0325hrs, control room called and inform patrol team that there was a fire incident at link 39, Bawo rd, Hausawa. All the family of one Mr. Jonathan, male, his wife, three children and their maid, all burnt to ashes. The fire was put out with the help of the men of Kano fire service.”
