Fire Raze Down Buildings, Shops In Ikorodu

INSIDEMAINLAND – In a series of horrible events, pandemonium broke out today in the Owode Onirin area of Ikorodu as a raging fire razed down several buildings and shops.

It was reported that some set of irate residents and hoodlums rejected efforts made by operatives of fire service and rescue teams dispatched to the scene as they were attacked.

The attackers could be seen protesting about the late arrival of the fire team who seem lackadaisical to the distress call

However, the move resulted in the further widespread of the raging fire to adjoining structures.

Confirming the development, the public relations officer of the state fire service, Mr Sakiru Amodu, said all efforts are on to keep the fire under control.

Meanwhile, the cause of the fire outbreak could not be ascertained as of press time.

An eyewitness told one of our correspondents that “some frantic residents tried to pour water on the fire but instead fuelled and started spreading to other structures”.

It was gathered that the fire started at about 9 am from a building before it spread to other structures, including an unspecified number of shops.
