A night fire engulfed and burnt three duplexes on 34 Road, B Close, Gowon Estate, Egbeda Lagos on Friday without any record of casualty.
An eyewitness told NAN the fire was first noticed at about 7.15 p.m in one of the duplexes before spreading to the others.
He said that an occupant in one of duplexes, who had just returned, opened the door and met the raging fire.
He immediately raised an alarm which attracted neighbours and sympathisers.
According to the witness, the bewildered occupant’s action quickly attracted more sympathisers who ran helter-skelter in assisting to put-off the fire but their efforts were not enough.
But the arrival and efforts of a combined team of Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) and State Fire Service officials to the scene helped to quench the fire.
The estate had also recorded a late night inferno on Nov. 28, 2017, which gutted five of eight shops attached to a Union Bank building on 411 Road Junction.
