    Quite very sad, the rate that fire-outbreak occurred in Nigeria, especially, this particular fire-outbreak,at Obanla-quarters-area, of the capital which is the suburb, of the city.Such fire-out-break, must be due to carelessness-attitude, by traders, operating their businesses, in that area.Sorry for these unnecessary loses to traders, in that vicinity, of the Ondo-State,capital,Akure.
