A second fire outbreak has occurred in Lagos state at Tejuosho market in Yaba, after an earlier outbreak at a building in Victoria island.
Multiple videos have flooded the internet of the large inferno though no lives have officially been declared lost in the incident.
The Permanent Secretary of the Lagos State Emergency Response Management Agency (LASEMA), Femi Oke-Osanyintolu, said that emergency responders are at the scene of the Yaba fire.

Margaret Adeseye, the director of the Lagos Fire and Rescue Service, in an update via Twitter said the fire gutted the “Tailor Market behind the ultra modern Tejuosho Market, Yaba, Lagos.”
“The Fire which involved the clothing and tailoring materials section of the market is being subdued by the Lagos Firefighters.”
Recall that hours earlier, a fire incident had occurred at the Adeola Odeku Street in Victoria Island, Lagos.
This is coming after a fire at the WAEC building last week. Citizens are warned to take care during the dry season.
