Property destroyed in two Lagos fire incidents
Property worth millions of naira was yesterday consumed in two fire accidents around Egbeda and Alagbado area of Lagos State. A storey building was gutted by fire yesterday afternoon at Shasha-Egbeda but was brought under control by the response team of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA).
Though information gathered by the agency at the scene of the incident revealed that the fire emanated from the kitchen, the cause of the inferno could not yet be ascertained as at the time the fire was put out.
The fire at No. 8, Ogunrinde Street, off Shasha-Egbeda, ravaged the 10 rooms of the building, also affecting the kitchen and toilet. Fortunately, no casualty or mortality was recorded.
In a similar development, residents of Lagos at AIT road by Coca Cola bus stop, Alagbado, were woken by the fire outbreak at a mini plastics factory. The plastics production factory was gutted by fire, which started at about 11:00p.m. on Wednesday, before it was eventually contained in the early hours of yesterday by the combined efforts of LASEMA and the Lagos State Fire Service, which stopped it from escalating to surrounding buildings.
Though cause of the fire could not be ascertained as at the time of the incident, investigations revealed that when the fire started, there was no production going on in the factory. However, during the outbreak, a bystander was injured and has since been taken to hospital. No mortality was recorded.
