A report that has just reached us says a plank market in the largely populated town of Ketu, a suburb of Lagos, is on fire.
A resident of the town, Adekoya Boladale, said in an update on his twitter handle (@Adekoyabee) that the fire started around 9 p.m. from the wood(pako) market in the town, spreading fast to other parts of the community
Mr. Adekoya provided a link to a blog covering the incident.
The blog reported that the fire had “engulfed the community area and presently spreading across to the main road burning houses and shops.”
The cause of the fire could not be ascertained yet, the report said.
Mr. Boladale later updated his twitter handle saying emergency workers were yet to flood the area.
“Ketu is on fire.Houses are burning and just one fire van is here. Emergency team needed,” he said, in what appears a distress call.
We will provide more details as we get more information.
