Fire on Sunday destroyed 15 shops and damaged other property at the Owode-Oniri Market in Lagos State.
The Director-General, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, LASEMA, Dr Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, told newsmen  that the fire started at 10: 27a.m.

The director-general said that the fire emanated from one of the several lines of shops in the market.

“The cause of the fire is still unknown as there is no power supply within the market.

“No life was lost but valuable items were destroyed, though the spread of fire is being curtailed.

“We have counted the shops, about 15 of them were gutted by fire,” Oke-Osanyintolu said.

Mr Oke-Osanyintolu said that the fire started from the metal segment of the market, making traders to call  767/112 channel of the agency.

He said that LASEMA  coordinated the response to the fire, adding that it got  support from the  Lagos State Fire Service and market union officials.
