Fire Guts Odo Eran Plank Market In Lagos




A fire outbreak in the early morning of Sunday has gutted the popular plan market at Odo Eran Bus Stop, Ogba, Ikeja. 

The incident which was alerted through the State’s Command and Control portal at 03:37 Sunday wee hours, saw the Ikeja and Alausa Fire Stations responding with backup from other emergency responders due to the intensity and nature of the combustible materials involved in the Fire.

In a statement by the Director, Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service, Mrs. Adeseye Margaret, the cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained as officials of Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service and others remain on top of the situation and will provide necessary updates as situation demands.

The agency has, however, assured the public that the strategy being deployed to control the burning rage with copious water and chemical foam compound would not allow it to affect any nearby property or life.
