The Lagos Airport Hotel in Ikeja, the state capital, has been engulfed by fire.

According to Sahara Reporters, the fire started around 1:00 pm.

This comes about two years after a fire incident was reported on the premises of the hotel.

Three vehicles were affected during the outbreak which also affected part of the hotel building in April 2020.

A Toyota Coaster bus with number plate, LND133XW; a Honda Civic car with number plate, AKR234LZ; and a Cadillac Escalade SUV with an unknown registration number were affected.

The inferno also affected a bungalow building of 11 rooms with six rooms severely burnt.

The Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service were able to douse the raging fire after it had destroyed several properties worth millions of naira.

According to Director, Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service, Margaret Adeseye, “upon arrival at the scene the ranging fire was stopped from causing further damage beyond the affected six rooms before the fire was eventually put out, saving adjoining structures and the veteran hotel.

“While the cause of the Fire is been investigated, there was however, no record of casualty in the unfortunate incident. The building affected is actually a staff quarters,” Adeseye stated.
