Fire outbreak hits Lagos market

A Fire outbreak has destroyed many shops at Apongbon market in Lagos Island.

The fire, which broke out on Wednesday morning caused a gridlock on the Eko Bridge.

The cause of the inferno is yet to be determined as of the time of filing this report as the federal and Lagos fire services are at the scene of the incident, trying to put out the fire.

In a tweet via its Twitter handle, the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) announced that the fire outbreak has resulted in the slow movement of motorists and advised that they use alternative routes.

This is coming less than two weeks after a three-story building in the Mushin area of Lagos State was gutted by fire following the explosion of a tanker discharging Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) at a nearby petrol station.
