This is hearthbreaking. Four offspring of a the same mother were scorched
to death at their home in Animal Line by Dore Street, off Mciver Market in Warri, Delta State, on Tuesday night, March fifth.
The kids, between the ages of a half year to six years, were in their home trusting that their mum will complete the process of cooking supper when a blast that inundated their building happened.
Although the cause of the fire is yet unknown, it is believed that the mother might have been using adulterated kerosene to cook. The mother of the children sustained serious burns and was rushed to Oghara hospital where she is receiving medical attention.
Chairman of Warri South Local Government Area, Dr Michael Tidi, who was at the scene of the incident on Wednesday morning, said the remains of the children has been deposited in the morgue.
