The Kano State Fire Service says it saved 132 lives and property, worth N16.5 million, in 41 fire incidents across the state in October.
The Public Relations Officer of service, Mr Saidu Muhammad, said this in a statement in Kano on Wednesday.
Muhammad, who said that the fire incidents occurred in different parts of the state in October, attributed the feats of the service to its synergy with the public.
He, however, said that nine persons died in the fire outbreaks, while property valued at N8.6 million was destroyed.
He said that the service responded to 86 rescue calls and 13 false alarms from residents during the period under review.
Muhammad listed careless handling of cooking gas, inferior electrical appliances and poor electrical wiring as some of the major causes of fire incidents in the state.
He urged residents of the state to support activities of the fire service by providing reliable and prompt information about fire outbreaks.
