“The cause of the fire incident which reportedly started from one part of the market, is yet to be ascertained however it is evident that there is extensive damage with valuable goods having been destroyed by the fire.
“Fortunately, no lives, were lost in the inferno which has been brought under control and dampened down,” Mr Oke-Osanyintolu said.
In another operation, the LASEMA boss said the response unit of the agency recovered a trailer conveying a 40ft container that ran over a culvert at Mile 2 inward Kirikri in the early hours of Sunday.
Investigation revealed that the accident was a result of mechanical error (brake failure) and the affected trailer has been evacuated off the road to a layby with aid of the agency’s heavy duty equipment.
Mr Oke-Osanyintolu said no loss of lives nor injuries were recorded in the incident.
He urged members of the public to exercise caution at all times on the road, especially when dealing with heavy duty equipment or machinery.
