Emergency responders comprising of LASEMA Response Team and the Lagos State Fire Service have curtailed the raging inferno at Ketu Plank Market on Demurin Street, Ketu, Lagos.
Cause of the fire incident which reportedly started from one part of the market, is yet to be ascertained. However, it is evident that there is extensive damage with valuable goods having been destroyed by the fire.
Dr Olufemi Damilola Oke-Osanyintolu, DG/CEO LASEMA, noted that no lives were lost in the inferno.
“The inferno has been brought under control and dampened down,” he added.
In another part of Lagos, the LASEMA Response Unit has recovered a trailer conveying a 40ft container that ran over a culvert at Mile 2 inward Kirikri earlier today.
Investigation by the LRT determined that the accident was a result of mechanical error (brake failure) of the trailer.
No loss of life, nor injuries were recorded in the incident where the LRT, LASTMA and men of the Nigerian Police were responders.
The affected Trailer has been evacuated off the road to a layby with the aid of the agency’s heavy-duty equipment.
Members of the public are urged to exercise caution at all times, especially when dealing with heavy duty equipment or machinery.Follow us on social media
