An explosion from a domestic gas cylinder, Sunday, gutted a residential building opposite the Olomoro Community market in Isoko South Local Government Area of Delta State.
It was learnt that resultant fire from the explosion was so severe due to the absence of men of the fire service.
Efforts made by sympathisers could not also save the building as it was completely razed down.
An eyewitness who craved anonymity stated that commercial shops attached to the building were also affected.
Occupants of the building were left with nothing apart from clothes they had on before the ugly incident.
