Fire Crackers Brings Down Houses In Lagos Island

I am sure when they bought those fire crackers and stored it in those warehouses in the Jankara area of Lagos, they were looking at how much sales they were going to make but guess fate had other plans for it as an unsuspected person threw it in one of the buildings and Alas, it was "fire cracking" burning down houses and leaving many homeless and millions of Naira lost.
Explosions from the "knockouts" caused panic amongst residents of the area.
The massive fire gutted eight houses and injured forty people according to Ibrahim Farinloye, the National Emergency Management Agency spokesperson in Lagos.NEMA said the army, navy and airforce joined in putting out the fire by midday.
 One person reported dead from the fire.
