A terrible fire outbreak that erupted in the yard of Lagos State Transport Management Agency (LASTMA) located in the Osodi area has caused a lot of damages.
According to LASTMA officials who spoke with journalists on Friday, August 15, the cause of the inferno who has destroyed about 10 cars and one trailer is yet unknown.
The agency's operatives revealed that the flames started in the premises of LASTMA where seized vehicles were kept.
The good news is that following the quick response of personnel of the state's fire service, the LRT and the LRU, no casualty was recorded.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that there was a fire outbreak at the accounts and finance department of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) secretariat, Asokoro, Abuja. It was reported that the inferno occurred on the night of Tuesday, August 4.
However, journalists gathered that the fire was quenched by operatives of the Federal Fire Service (FFS) in a short time after it erupted.
Also, what could have boomeranged into a tragedy was thankfully averted when a fire outbreak hit the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Thursday, June 4.
Mallam Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, confirming the fire incident described the situation as minor.
The presidential aide said the incident was caused by an electrical spark in the afternoon at a store near the State House Chapel in the Presidential Villa. Aso Rock would have been razed to the ground had it not been for the timely intervention of vigilant members of staff on the premises, Shehu said.
He said that the minor fire incident was brought under control by vigilant staff using fire extinguishers, adding that there was no report of injury or damage.
