Main Local news LOCAL NEWS Many feared dead, vehicles burnt as petrol tanker explodes in Lagos.

Tragedy struck on Wednesday morning, January 30, when a truck loaded with 33,000 litres of petroleum product fell at Barracks bus stop, along Mile 2/Badagry expressway, Ojo area of Lagos. The truck was said to have spilled its content on the ground and triggered wildfire, The Guardian reports. Legit.ng gathers that a yet-to-be-ascertained number of people lost their lives in the unfortunate incident, which also had a lot of vehicles burnt. According to report, police officials, fire service personnel and Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) are on ground for rescue operation.
The fire started around 12pm from the 10th floor of the building, shattering glasses and razing down the properties worth millions of naira. No one was in the building when the fire started. Eyewitness disclosed that the first two fire service trucks that arrived the scene were unable to quench the fire because they lacked long pipes that could get to the 10th floor. It was also gathered that the officials of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) were also at the scene of the fire, as staff of the organisation were evacuated, watching the building down into the wild flames where they stood downstairs. An eyewitness recounted: “No one was in the building before the fire escalated.”
A staff of the company expressed concern over the loss of her properties, adding that during the fire outbreak, personal and other private properties were also lost to fire.
