An Access Bank building on Adetokunbo Ademola Street, Victoria Island, Lagos was gutted by fire on Wednesday morning, August 26, 2020.
According to a tweet post from the Federal Fire Service on their official Twitter handle, men of the service are already at the scene of the incident where a petrol/diesel tanker is currently on fire.
Media reports also suggest that the fire outbreak might have affected a second building close to the scene of the incident.
Unconfirmed report says that the fire started when a diesel-laden truck was offloading diesel for generators of the bank. In the process, an explosion from a yet to be identified source occurred, igniting a massive fire, which subsequently spread to a nearby bank building.
