It was found out that the fire began around today 8.30am on Wednesday 29th 2020 from a four-story building situated at No. 35/37, Martins Street, and in under two minutes, the fire had spread to different structures and a significant number of the unfortunate casualties couldn’t rescue nothing as the fire immediately spread to different structures around.
Seven structures in the Balogun Market region of Lagos Island, Lagos State, were influenced
People around the scene commends the Lagos State Fire Service as they arrived at the scene expeditiously.
The fire fighters couldn’t do much as the vendors and different merchants clogged the scene.
After a primer review by the LASEMA (Lagos State Emergency Management Agency), they reasoned that somebody was attempting to fill a generator that was working with fuel, and this may have been the reason for the fire flare-up.
