Fire Guts Lagos Airport Hotel

Fire gutted the premises of the Lagos Airport Hotel, situated in the Ikeja area of Lagos State, on Thursday.

According to reports, three vehicles were razed while the main hotel building was not affected by the inferno.

Dr Damilola Oke-Osanyintolu, Director General of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, who confirmed the incident in a statement, said a building within the hotel premises was also affected but noted that the fire has been extinguished.

He said: “We received multiple reports of a fire outbreak at Ikeja Airport Hotel along Obafemi Awolowo Way in Ikeja.

“On arrival at the above scene, it was determined that three (3) vehicles had caught fire, one Toyota coaster bus (LND133XW), a Honda civic saloon car (AKR234LZ) and a Cadillac Escalade car with unknown registration number.

“The resultant fire affected the Tour Africa Transport Company within the airport hotel premises and not the hotel building itself.

“The flames have since been extinguished by our responders and the Lagos State Fire Service and an investigation is being carried out to ascertain the cause of the fire.

“We appeal for calm and will provide further updates.”
