The two tankers, which went up in flames, affected another tanker and a trailer.
While the men of the Federal Fire Service have started rescue operations, officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps have started controlling traffic which has affected movement inward Lagos.
In a statement issued, the FRSC Sector Commander, Lagos State Command, Olusegun Ogungbemide, advised motorists to seek alternative routes.
