The Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR, has warned Nigerians most especially motorists to desist from using cell phones while refueling at filling stations to prevent fire outbreak.

Ademola Makinde, DPR’s Operation Controller in Osun, told newsmen on Tuesday in Osogbo that such an act is dangerous as petrol is highly inflammable.

He also appealed to motorists to always turn off their car engines before refueling.
