Fire: Lagos Gives Reason Behind Incessant Outbreaks

INSIDEMAINLAND– The Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service has blamed the state’s increased fire incidents on the country’s fuel scarcity.

Adeseye made the announcement in a statement issued on Tuesday by Jamiu Dosunmu, Assistant Director of, the Public Affairs Unit.

The Director, who spoke at the 2023 first bi-annual staff engagement for firemen to set the year’s agenda, also stated that fires in the state were caused by negligence and harmattan.

She bemoaned the fact that the agency had received numerous false calls.

She said, “The state government under the leadership of Mr. Governor, Babajide Olusola Sanwa-Olu has handed over 62 fire apparatuses, renovated and reconstructed existing fire stations, constructed four new fire stations while the construction of three additional fire stations is ongoing at Oworonshoki, Ijede, and Ijegun Egba to further boost the effectiveness and efficiency of service delivery in and around the state.”

In his remarks, Mobolaji Ogunlende, Special Adviser to the Governor on Special Duties and Intergovernmental Relations, said the state government was passionate about the state fire service, adding that the agency was undergoing rebranding to reposition it for effective and excellent performance.
