One injured as fire engulfed several makeshift structures in the Ikate-Elegushi area of Lagos State.
The Director of the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service, Margaret Adeseye, confirmed the occurrence of the inferno in a statement issued on Monday, following the incident that transpired Sunday night.
“One male adult injured and treated by LASAMBUS and in stable condition,” she said, adding that “the fire was confined to the makeshift structures it emanated while saving the adjoining highbrow properties.
“However, 62 camps gas were discovered during the course of firefighting, which aided the spread of the fire as they kept triggering simultaneously until the fire was put out at about 00:15 hrs.
“The mop-up exercise concluded at about 03:05 hours for the enumeration of property, which is ongoing.”
