A fire incident occurred at the headquarters of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) in Abuja on Monday. According to officials, the fire affected a store attached to a canteen used by the agency’s staff members at the headquarters’ annex.
FIRS spokesman, Wahab Gbadamosi, said the inferno was contained from further spreading by firemen.
“Firemen who put out the fire are investigating the source of the fire,” he said.
Footage seen on social media showed firemen standing atop a fire truck and pouring water as thick smoke billowed from a patch of the building.
Officials of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Fire Service arrived the scene a couple of minutes after the fire began and worked with Security and Safety officers of the FIRS to put out the fire within two hours.
The Executive Chairman, FIRS, Mr. Tunde Fowler, has visited the scene for first hand assessment.
