A three-storey building located at Dosunmu Street, Lagos Island has been gutted by fire.

Margaret Adeseye, director of Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service, said the incident occurred at about 8:50pm on Saturday.

Adeseye said the quick intervention of the fire rescue team restrained the spread to other parts of the building, adding that only the topmost floors were affected.

She said no casualties or injuries were recorded in the fire.


“The Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service has brought under control the raging Fire at 54, Dosunmu Street, within the popular Lagos Market, Lagos Island,” the statement reads.

“The fire which was reported at 20:50 hours, Saturday involved a trio of three-storey buildings but the timely intervention of coordinated tactical firefighting limits it to only the topmost floors.

“While house 54 where the fire erupted from was severely affected, houses 56 and 58 were however sparsely involved.


“It affected a variety of goods that include key lock/cylinder, decoration fittings, Christmas items, among others, which cost cannot be immediately ascertained.”

She said the cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained, adding that an investigation is ongoing.

In recent weeks, fire incidents have been recorded at a construction site in Lekki and another at a petrochemical factory in Lagos.
