The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency has extinguished a blaze that destroyed a section of the popular Ladipo spare parts market in Lagos’ Mushin Local Government Area.
On Sunday morning, the fire was said to have started in one of the shops in the Alapeju section of the market.
There were no reported injuries or fatalities as LASEMA personnel responded promptly to prevent the fire from spreading and causing additional damage to properties worth millions of naira.
According to a statement issued by LASEMA’s Head of Public Affairs, Nosa Okunbor, the incident drew residents’ attention and also drew traders who live near the market to their shops to either remove their wares or assist in putting out the inferno.
Dr. Olufemi Damilola Oke-Osanyintolu, Director-General and Chief Executive Officer of LASEMA, provided an update on the inferno.
He asserts, “When Agency responders arrived on the scene, they discovered a single-story commercial building engulfed in flames.
“At the time of filing this report, the cause of the fire had not been determined.
“A combined team comprised of members of the Agency’s LASEMA Response Team (LRT), LASEMA Response Unit Fire (LRU fire), Lagos State and Federal Fire Services, made concerted efforts to extinguish the blaze and prevent it from spreading to neighbouring structures.
“The fire has been extinguished, and the dampening down process has concluded.
“There will be no further updates.”
