Speaking on the incident, Osanyintolu said “we received call earlier this morning that there is a fire incident that involves two multistorey buildings at Martins Street and Dosumus Street in Lagos.

“We are able to locate and localised the fire but the major challenge we are having is access to major source of the fire; secondly, we discovered that they stored highly inflammable materials in the building.”
“The way the building is positioned adjacently and interlocked to the centre area, but we made use of combined team method to localise the fire which spread from one shop to the other but we tried to put it off,” NAN quoted Oke-Osanyintolu as saying.
He appealed to Lagos citizens, especially the traders at Lagos Island markets, not to panic as there was no casualty involved in the incident.
He, however, pleaded with traders to stop putting generators and petrol inside their shops to avoid similar accidents in the area.
