24 August 2012, Sweetcrude, ASABA—TWO brothers have been wounded in Asaba, Delta State capital, following explosion that occurred as they were refilling a lantern in their house on Wednesday night.

The incident, which occurred at Ezenei axis in the town could have set the entire building ablaze but for the quick intervention of neighbours, who put out the fire.

Mother of the children, wondered why the lamp was not put off before pouring in the Kerosene, adding that she repeatedly warned the children against refilling the lantern when it was on.
