Fire Burns 17 Houses After Someone Forgets To Off A Candle Light

No fewer than 17 structures were razed by fire on Monday in the Ikota, Lekki-Ajah area of Lagos State Nigeria, after a resident left a lighted candle in his room, Nigerian Newspaper the Punch reports.

This is just as a section of a branch of Access Bank in the Ojo area of the state was severely damaged by fire after a power surge.

The Police said “Somebody forgot a candle and slept off. It burnt out and started a fire. We met the fire raging and we engaged in active firefighting operation to save the shanties, but unfortunately, we lost 17 of them to the fire.”
