AMU PLANK MARKET LAGOS STATE

FIRE GUTS AMU MARKET IN MUSHIN, LAGOS STATE

Properties worth billions of naira were on Saturday destroyed in a fire outbreak which gutted the building materials sections of Amu market in Mushin, Lagos State.

According to an eyewitness, the fire started from one of the several lines of shops within the market in the early hours of the day.

The actual cause of the inferno, which the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) currently battling with, could not be ascertained at press time, as there was no power supply within the market.

The eyewitness said that the fire started around 12:27 am from a spot in the market and spread to other buildings and other shops before LASEMA team came to the market.

He said: “As at the time the fire started, that was no power supply. So it is difficult to say what actually caused the fire outbreak. Almost 90 per cent of the building materials have been destroyed but no life was lost.”
