Chairman of the Special Committee on Fire Safety, Hon Mudasiru Oguntola Toogun has charged proprietors and proprietresses of Private schools who run boarding facilities to be conscious of fire outbreak in their kitchens and hostels.

Hon Toogun made this charge while on the monitoring tour to schools with boarding facilities in Osogbo.

He said students are unpredictable and need to be very observant with the way they handle fire related facilities in order to avoid fire disaster.
