No fire incidence at Stanel World – Management



MANAGEMENT of Stanel World has refuted rumours making the rounds in the social media that Stanel Filling Station at Agu-Awka was gutted by fire.

  The refuttal came when journalists visited the office to ascertain the level of damage by the fire disaster.

It was observed that the fire was as a result of bush fires in a nearby vacant land and not in the compound housing Stanel as pasted on social media.

Debunking the false alarm, Manager, Stanel World, Mr Chris Oradi noted that the fire was as a result of bush fires across the perimeter fence of Stanel.

He said that the management had taken precautionary measures in ensuring safety of life and property

“We have a fire fighting truck and we clear bushes in our environment every two months. So it was a false alarm.

“We urge our customers to ignore such false alarm.”

The Acting Chief Security Officer of Stanel, Mr Bitrus Auta and Mr Paul Onuora, a staff member of Stanel Group, said that they noticed a fire in a bush close to the company and immediately alerted the Anambra State Fire Service.

According to them, the firemen who responded promptly, deployed their machines and tactics immediately and put out the fire.

Director and Chief Fire Officer, Anambra State Fire Service, Mr Martin Agbili explained that they received a distress call of fire on premises close to Stanel.

“At about 1200 hours, there was a fire outbreak which came through bush burning. From every indication, somebody had set fire on a vacant land by Stanel World which resulted in a heavy fire outbreak and it threatened to enter the petrol station.

“Anambra State Firefighters moved in to save the situation immediately after the calls; right now, the fire has been put out and no life was lost.

“There was no damage of property at Stanel because of our prompt response to the scene and the assistance of the people around there before the arrival of the firefighters,” he said.
