Inferno: 2 Killed, 100 Shanties Burnt In Lagos Fire

Fire Razes

Two persons have died in an early morning fire incident which razed over 100 shanties in Kuramo, near Lekki in Lagos.

The director of the Lagos State Fire Service, Mr Rasak Fadipe told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the burnt bodies of a man and a woman were recovered at the scene.

“The shanties spread to about four plots of land. We got information that the fire started at about 3.15 a.m.

“Information we got was that a young lady was cooking in one of the shanties and there was a fuel container nearby, which ignited the fire and spread to other parts.

“It took us about four hours to put out the fire. My men did not know there was anybody inside while they were fighting the fire.

“We met the man and woman in two different locations roasted after we finally put out the fire,’’ Fadipe said.

The director said that the corpses were handed over to police officers from Ilason Division, who later took them to the mortuary.
