Published by admin on

A  one-story building at number 36, Awolowo Way, by the Under Bridge, Computer Village, Ikeja, Lagos, was gutted by a mysterious fire on Wednesday morning, destroying items worth millions of naira.

The incident occurred at about 9.45 am, and officials confirmed that there were no casualties. The affected traders were seen trying to salvage their wares from the burning building.

The Director of Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service, Mrs. Magaret Adeseye, confirmed the incident, saying, “The situation is under control.”

The cause of the inferno is yet to be ascertained. The fire has been confined to the ground floor, and it emanated from ongoing efforts to access the seat of fire and curtailed it from spreading to the upper floor and nearby structures within the smoke log environment.

The incident happened barely 12 hours after a gas tanker explosion occurred late Tuesday night in the Iju-Ishaga area of the state. A video of the incident was shared on social media

According to Adeseye, “a commercial one-story building gut-fired from the ground floor is used as a store in the buzzing city capital, Computer Village.

“The fire has been confined to the ground floor; it emanated from ongoing efforts to access the seat of fire and curtailed it from spreading to the upper floor and nearby structures within the smoke log environment.

“The cause of the inferno is yet to be ascertained. There is no casualty recorded so far.”
