Fire yesterday morning gutted 14 rooms in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.
The rooms are parts of a 46-bedroom family house at 13, Onibata compound, Alore, Ilorin.
The inferno, it was gathered, occurred around 2am and was said to have been caused by power surge.
Fire Service spokesman Hassan Adekunle confirmed the incident.
He said a distress call was received from a resident simply identified as Abdulganiyu.
Adekunle said: “On getting to the scene, the fire was still raging and had destroyed some of the rooms in the building owing to the late call.”
