Meanwhile, firefighters from the NNPC were still trying to put out the fire as at the time of filing this report, as policemen were drafted in from the Warri area command to maintain peace in the area.

It will be recalled that the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) in Warri had raised the alarm over alleged sharp practices by petrol station owners, warning them on the dangers of adulterated products.
