Although the cause of the inferno is not yet known as at press time, but The Guardian learnt that the fire started at about 5.pm.

Lagos State Fire Service, which confirmed the incident, said fire fighters from three state fire stations and the Federal Fire Service are currently battling to put out the fire.
