A fire triggered by a cigarette stud has reportedly destroyed 15 speedboats, goods, and property worth millions of naira. 

The inferno which began around 11 pm on Sunday December 19, from a nearby filling station after shop owners had gone home, razed a section of the Miller Waterside along the NPA Road in Warri, Warri South Local Government Area of Delta State.

The damage was already been done before firefighters arrived at the scene. Some eyewitnesses told journalists that the fire was caused by a cigarette stub carelessly thrown away near the filling station.

A resident of the area who identified herself simply as Mine, said they heard an explosion around 11 pm and before they could rush out, the fire had engulfed the entire area.
