Fire Guts Access Bank In Victoria Island, Lagos (Video)
Tragedy struck in Lagos State on Wednesday, August 26, when fire gutted a branch of Access Bank on Ademola Adetokunbo Street in Victoria Island, Lagos.
Unconfirmed reports say a tanker laden with what was presumably diesel was at the premises of one of the banks to discharge its product for the bank’s generator.
In the process, an explosion from a yet-to-be-identified source occurred, igniting a massive fire, which soon spread to a neighboring bank’s building.
The raging fire was captured on cameras by pedestrians from the road and people in surrounding buildings.
The fire from the tanker marked AKD 637 XP consumed a car with registration number AKD 234 FA parked within the bank premises.
However, combined intervention of the emergency responders including LASEMA Response Team, Eko Hotel, LASG fire, UBA Fire Service prevented the inferno from escalating further into the bank building.
