The Harmattan season is here, and it's the time to be extremely careful with fire.

At least eight make-shift shops were gutted by fire in the popular Gowon Estate in Egbeda, Lagos.

The fire which began late Monday night and burnt till Tuesday morning, consumed shops attached to a Union Bank building on 411 Road Junction.

Report says the fire was noticed around 11:30pm on Monday when Ikeja Electric ceased power.

Most of the shop owners have closed and gone home as they are not resident of the estate.

However, youth had brought down the fire before the arrival of the men of the Lagos State Fire Service from Agege about two hours after.

Meanwhile, a dry cleaning shop, a mini-cold room as well as a provision shop run by an octogenarian had every item in them destroyed by the inferno.

No life was lost as the cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained.
