The true story is she’s using one special kind of stove, so the kerosene finished while she was cooking, she wanted to top it up without switching off the stove that was when the thing exploded and made a very loud noise, it affected her
She ran out of the room cause fire caught her clothes by the time she was taking care of herself, the room was burning already
