The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) says a total of 16 buildings were affected in a fire outbreak on Dosumu Idumota street in Lagos Island.

On Tuesday, several buildings went up in flames after a fire outbreak from a petrol generator.

Providing an update on the development on Wednesday, Olufemi Oke-Osayintolu, permanent secretary of LASEMA, said the buildings affected had increased to 15, adding that six of the affected structures completely collapsed.

“Investigation gathered revealed that the fire started from a shop where a generator set was being fueled while still on,” the statement reads.

“The generator ignited in the process and the person fueling the generator threw the fuel to the building opposite, causing the fire to escalate.

“The fire had currently affected about fifteen (15) buildings out of which six (6) had collapsed. No casualties or mortality recorded so far.

“Efforts are still ongoing to put out the fire as it has been localized and fire engines positioned at strategic areas.”
