Sources from the area told newsmen that, although the immediate cause of the fire could not be ascertained, it took the efforts of men of the Delta State Fire Service to battle the deadly inferno to a standstill to avoid spreading to other buildings in the area.

It was reliably gathered that one of the victims who occupies a three bedroom apartment in the building, lost everything including properties and items bought in preparation for his wedding ceremony that was scheduled for this December.

While unconfirmed sources have suspected that the fire may have been caused by a candle light or gas cylinder explosion in one of the apartment, sympathisers at the scene of the incidence however hailed the Delta State Fire Service Team in Ughelli, stating that if not for their prompt intervention in responding to the distress call, other buildings in the area would also have been gutted by the fire.

As at the time of filing this report, no life was lost.
