A section of the newly commissioned Lagos Blue Rail Mass Transit at Marina was reportedly razed by fire on Tuesday, 28th February 2023.
It was reported that the fire affected the section which houses a generator used in the facility. The fire was said to have been ignited by a petrol-powered generator deployed to pump diesel into the barge from a tanker parked by pier 27.
However, no life was lost, and no one was injured, as the fire was quickly put out by firefighters from both the Federal and State fire stations before it could spread to other sections.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the incident.
He said, “The fire at Marina started from the generator of the Blue Rail Mass Transit. Police patrol teams and the Fire Service are already on the ground to control the crowd and extinguish the fire.”
Meanwhile, people are urged to go about their lawful duties and not panic as the situation is under control.”
