Fire guts another auto parts market in Lagos, focus warehouse one restaurant affected

A section of the Olowu spare parts market in Ikeja area of Lagos state has been razed by fire.

Ibrahim Farinloye, Lagos coordinator, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), told journalists on Thursday that the fire was recorded in the early hours of the morning.

Farinloye said the fire affected 13 shops, four warehouses, and one restaurant.

“The cause of the fire cannot be determined as of now,” he said.

“But the chairman of the traders association, Bassey Ikpendu, while narrating the situation, applauded the efforts of the state fire service that prevented the escalation of the incident due to the combustible materials that were involved.”

He said no injury or death was recorded.

The incident comes barely two days after a fire outbreak at a five-storey building in Balogun market in the state.

One body was recovered from the fire while seven persons were injured.

Earlier in the month, some sections of the Akere automobile parts market in the Olodi-Apapa area of the state were gutted by fire.

The affected shops contained automobile spare parts.
