Somewhere in Edo state, serious fire outbreak occurred due to massive electric spark from electric poles.
An electric spark can cause a fire if it ignites flammable material in the vicinity. This can happen if the spark is generated near combustible materials, such as paper, wood, or gasoline.
It can also occur if the spark is generated within an electrical device that is not properly designed or maintained, and the heat from the spark causes nearby materials to catch fire.
In a video sent to gist of the day, cars can be seen burning seriously somewhere in Edo state as a result of an electric spark, from a nearby electric poll.
The cause of spark trigger which resulted into a fire outbreak is still unknown but folks were quickly able to gather around and a man can be seen using a fire extinguisher to quench fire.
Voices could also be heard screaming and lamenting in the video background, but fortunately no lives were reported to be lost.
