Fire on Tuesday gutted a five-storeyed building housing different businesses at Balogun market, Lagos Island.
The fire started in the early hours of Tuesday.
YANGA24 reports that fire servicemen are currently on the ground, making frantic effort to put out the inferno.
As at the time of filing this report, the cause of the outbreak cannot be ascertained by our reporter.
