A turkish plane caught fire during fuelling at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano.

It was gathered that the incident occurred at 11 pm.

The Airport authorities were mobilised to the site and the aircraft was towed away.

A source said the fuel tanker was partly razed and the aircraft “slightly damaged”.

The source said: “It was God who saved the aircraft. Men of the Airport Fire  Service mobilised to the scene immediately.

“The good thing was that the fuelling was through a tanker, which partially caught fire but the fire was promptly put out, if it was underground fuelling, it would have been a disaster.”
