Fire engulfs BEDC substation in Delta

Nigeria: Fire has engulfed the Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC) substation in Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State, reports Daily Post.

Efforts by firefighters to extinguish the raging fire were unsuccessful as they repeatedly ran short of water supply. By the time they were mobilized back to the scene, a serious damage had been done to the substation.

The cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained but the images indicate this may be a transformer fire.
