Sadiya Umar Farouq, minister of humanitarian affairs, disaster management and social development, was at the scene of the fire outbreak in Onitsha, Anambra state, on Friday.
A tanker laden with petroleum products had fallen into a ditch and spilled its contents, resulting in an explosion on Wednesday.
The fire razed structures, including shops, on Upper Iweka road and at Ochanja market in the commercial city.
