Tragedy occurred yesterday afternoon as Fire razed Grandex, a supermarket owned by Florence, widow of the late former governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi.
Eyewitnesses told journalists that the inferno which started at about 3:00 p.m. from the back of the supermarket later spread to the main store.
Those at the popular Osuntokun junction also saved the day as they rallied round to fetch water and bring fire extinguishers to fight the fire before the arrival of the state fire fighters.
The inferno, according to them, was caused by electrical sparks in the building.
The fire damaged a section of the grocery and household store while several wares were recovered from the unaffected part of the building.
