The ill-famous Fire outbreak which occurred at about 09:37 hours Tuesday, has been put out by the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service with complimentary efforts of emergency responders.
The Fire which emerged from topmost floor of a five storey building at no 32, Balogun Street, Lagos and quickly spread to a closely knitted three storey building at no 34, Balogun Street which houses an old generation bank was however curtailed from spreading to other adjoining structures containing two new generation banks and trading stores.
The scenario which involved combustible female shoes and sandals was agog with traders salvaging their wares and bystanders trying to catch the glimpse. The usually clumsy terrain quickly became inconvenient and created impediment for rapid Firefighting operations which is now at dampening down of pocket of Fires within the affected structures.
The operations without any casualty however recorded minor injuries to about five persons who were treated and discharged on the spot by the medical emergency.
The cause of the Fire is yet to be ascertained as the affected structures are under examination to test their stability or otherwise.
Operations continue till ground zero is achieved.
