Lagos Firefighters Combated Fire Outbreak In Two Different Areas Overnight.
The Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service overnight, Saturday combated two different areas of fire outbreak in Bariga and Somolu areas of the State.
According to the information made available to us, the first emergency was notified at 00:31 hours, Sunday to 19, Apata Street, Shomolu while the other was reported at 03:19 hours to 48, Jagunmolu Street, Bariga just as the former Firefighting was concluded.
Adeseye Margaret who is the Director, of Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service revealed the incident today October 2, 2022, in a press statement that was made available to the media.
The Shomolu incident affected four rooms and three shops in a bungalow building consisting of eight rooms and four shops while the Bariga Fire affected 10 rooms in a bungalow building consisting of 25 rooms and 18 shops.
The Ilupeju and Isolo Fire Crews that both responded to the two separate emergencies met them well alight and lamented delayed calls as Fire had wrecked havoc before they were alerted to salvage the situations.
The preliminary investigation revealed negligence as the undercurrent causes of both Fires which led to an electrical upsurge as reported shock was witnessed at Shomolu before the arrival of the Firefighters.
It was, however, unfortunate that a male adult of about 50 years of age was recovered and handed over to the State Environmental Health Monitoring Unit at Bariga while that of Somolu does not involve any loss of life or injury.
