Pipeline fire explosion in Lagos killed two people, razed many cars and house in the Ijegun area caused by vandals breaking into the gasoline supply channels during early hours of Thursday.
Men of the Lagos State and federal fire services are currently battling to put out the raging fire and to prevent it from spread beyond the current position.


Eyewitnesses told The Guardian that the fire might have been ignited by petrol thieves who were siphoning fuel in the area.
Two persons have been confirmed dead, houses, cars razed and a Lagos State Government-owned secondary school has also lost its fence to the fire.
With the firemen still trying to bring the blaze under control, residents of the community are afraid the fire may extend to a gas refilling station near the scene of the incident.
Already, the fire trucks at the scene have gone two turns each to refill. According to the Director General of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) Dr Oluwafemi Oke Osanyintolu, two people have been confirmed killed in the inferno, while operations to curtail the fire continue as at 9;42 am.
“We are still at the scene of the fire and after we have been able to curtail it we will carry out our investigation and come out with a preliminary report of the situation,” Oke-Osanyintolu told The Global Financial Digest on Phone.
