An early morning fire has gutted a petrol tanker along Ajayi Road in Ogba,Lagos.
According to an eye-witness account, the fire started when a pipe from the tanker burst as it was prepared to load it’s content inside Yerevan Oil Filling Station.
Youths and the elders in the vicinity all trooped out with buckets of water to douse the fire which had engulfed the tanker before the men of the Fire Service arrived to join in.
Speaking to our correspondent, a resident in the area who spoke anonymously said:” Thank God there was synergy among the youths in the area which prevented the fire from escalating to the petrol station.It could have been worse.”
As of the time of filing of this report, the fire had been put out as normalcy had returned to the area.
