Another Fire Outbreak Hits Balogun Market (PHOTOS)

Another fire outbreak has been reported at the popular Balogun Market, Lagos Island.

This comes months after property worth millions of naira were destroyed as fire razed some shops at the market earlier in the year.

The incident which occurred at 32, Gbajumo street exactly 9:45AM has left everyone in topsy-turvy as many can’t trace the root.

However, an eye witness speaking with Legit.ng correspondent claimed that the fire came up as the manager was trying to operate the power switch.

The fire brigades were unable to access building as a result of the cubicles that were set on the street.

Another witness, Adebanjo Titilayo Ismail, confirmed that the cubicles have caused many damages as he claimed more than three buildings in January were destroyed.
