He noted that the fire, which has since been extinguished, was as a result of petroleum products spillage within the perimeter of the tank farm.

Meanwhile, he said, NNPC Ltd and other depots in the area have resumed loading activities.

He assures that the incident will, in no way, affect petroleum products supply and distribution across the country.
