BREAKING: Fire guts Balogun market in Lagos State

A three-storey building located at Breadfruit Street, Balogun Market in Lagos State was gutted by fire on Monday afternoon.

A press statement made available by Margaret Adeseye who is the Director of the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service disclosed that the fire started from the second floor of the building.

The statement reads:

The Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service has initiated a comprehensive operation to contain a fire outbreak at 48 Breadfruit Street, Apongbon, Lagos, which began at approximately 12:24hrs on Monday.

“The blaze, originating from the second floor of a three-storey building primarily housing various hair wigs, prompted a swift and coordinated response from multiple fire crews, including those stationed at Ebute Elefun, Sari Iganmu, Dolphin, and Alausa of the agency, as well as the Federal Fire Service.

“Despite challenges posed by the difficult terrain and heightened concerns among traders, the fire has been successfully extinguished, preventing its spread to adjacent properties and salvaging what remains of the affected structure.

“There have been no reported casualties, and the cause of the fire is attributed to careless handling of a generator. Further updates will be provided as the situation unfolds.”
