No fewer than 25 shops were gutted by fire at Araromi Spare parts market, Agodi Gate, Ibadan in the early hours of Saturday.

General Manager, Oyo State Fire Service, Rev. Canon Yemi Akinyinka, confirmed the incident in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Ibadan.

“The incident was caused by a careless burning of refuse, they refuse to put off the burning refuse before leaving the shop and it escalated.
