A midnight fire incident has destroyed goods worth millions of naira in at least 10 shops at the popular Araromi Spare Parts Market in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

It was gathered that the incident occurred around 2am on Saturday as a result of the indiscriminate burning of refuse.

One of the spare parts sellers, Olajide Ige, revealed that about 10 shops were affected and goods worth millions of naira were razed.

The Federal Fire and state fire services have continually cautioned against harmful effects of fire during the dry season.

They have also advised residents to ensure electrical gadgets were switched off whenever there was electricity supply disruption to avoid electrical sparks as a result of power surge when power is resupplied.
