About seven buildings have been reportedly destroyed at the Balogun market, located on Lagos Island due to a fire outbreak. Fire only recently razed a section of the same market.
The fire is said to have started from Anambra Plaza on Martins Street in the market and has spread to about six other structures.
Firefighters are currently battling it.
A Channels TV report quoted the Director-General of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Femi Oke-Osanyintolu, as saying that the fire was caused by fuel stored inappropriately in one of the buildings.
The fire has caused panic among traders who are busy salvaging their goods from the windows of the buildings.
