A fire outbreak has been reported at the rooftop of the World Trade Centre in Abuja.
This was disclosed in a report from ChannelsTV, which stated that an official of the company, Mr Ibukun Adeogun said that the fire occurred at about 11.30 a.m.
At least three fire service trucks were deployed to contain the fire, which Mr. Adeogun explained did not cause any damage.
An eyewitness explained that the fire started from the top of the skyscraper which dots the skyline of Central Business District, Abuja as smoke billowed from the pinnacle.
Adeogun added that the fire had been extinguished by high-pressure sprinklers in the building.
He said, “There was a minor fire outbreak at one of the floors close to the top floor near the shaft. The building is a high-tech building and the sprinklers put out the fire.
“Because the fire occurred close to the top floor and the extraction system was on the roof, smoke was coming out even after the fire had been extinguished.”
