Fire Service rescues 7 from collapsed building in Kano



Seven persons have so far been rescued from a building which collapsed on Beirut Road, Kano on Tuesday.

Many others are still trapped in the rubble, spokesman of the Kano State Fire Service, Alhaji Saminu Abdullahi, said in Kano.

“We received a distress call about the collapse at about 3.30 p.m. and sent our rescue team to the three-storey building under construction, but used for the business of selling cell phones,” he said.

Abdullahi said those rescued were immediately taken to the Murtala Muhammed Specialist Hospital, Kano for treatment.

Operatives of the National Emergency Management Agency, those of the State Emergency Management Agency, the Red Cross, and the Police and sister agencies are still at the scene to rescue more trapped victims.
