What could have caused this kind of outbreak?? Nah bomb??? A place like that should have been highly secured with walk-around securities to ensure everything is in order.

This is very bad. People are usually in Church service by 8am. We pray nobody is hurt.


Christ embassy does not have a fire service hydrant and fire alarm systems. This could have been tamed if they had fire hydrant equipment in that massive structure.


May God save everyone out there. Wishing the fire service men at the scene success in putting out the fire.


This is huge...
One lesson here is the new phase of the building repairs should come with fireproofing materials.
What a loss.
