Kano: Fire Burns Three Zenith Bank ATMs

A fire incident has burnt three Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) belonging to Zenith Bank at Tafawa Balewa road in Nasarawa Local Government area of Kano.

The development is coming barely 24 hours after another outbreak that burnt down over 100 shops in popular foodstuff market, Kasuwar Singer in the state.

A statement issued to newsmen by the  State Fire Service and signed by its Spokesman Saminu Abdullahi confirmed the Tuesday fire.

Abdullahi said that the fire service received a distress call at about 12:06 p.m. from one Ghali Muhammad that there was fire outbreak at the ATM points.

“On receiving the information, we quickly sent some of our personnel and fire fighting vehicles to the scene of the incident at about 12:11 p.m, to quench the fire so as not to affect other ATMs,” he said.

Abdullahi further stated that three ATMs were completely razed by the inferno, while the other three were slightly burnt.

He attributed the incident to electric spark from the ATM machines.
