Barely two months after shops were razed by fire in Gowon Estate, Egbeda area of Lagos State, three duplexes have been burnt down by inferno.

Eyewitness said the fire was first noticed in one apartment at about 7pm, before it later spread to other buildings.

An occupant in one of the apartments returned home only to meet fire in his home. He rushed back and raised alarm.

Neighbours and sympathisers made attempts to put out the fire with little or no result, until the arrival of a combined team of Lagos State Emergency Management Agency and State Fire Service officials.

“They came with five trucks, all with sufficient water that tackled the inferno before it was finally put out,’’ the Community Development Association Chairman, Mr Nathanel Okoro, told NAN.

It could be recalled that on November 28, 2017, five of eight shops attached to a Union Bank building on 411 Road Junction, Gowon Estate, Federal Housing Authority, Egbeda was gutted by fire.
