NEMA Decries Water Scarcity As Fire Razes 4 Buildings.

Lagos zone of the National Emergency Management Agency is not happy with the escalation of the fire incident that engulfed four buildings in the Idumota area of the Lagos Island Local Government Area of the state due to lack of adequate water supply.

The NEMA State Coordinator, Ibrahim Farinloye, who disclosed this said, the emergency responders were faced with the challenge of water supply that could have aided the effective quelling of the fire, while, preventing the escalation and the level of damage caused by the fire.

He also said, there was no water source within proximity of the fire incident, thereby forcing the fire vehicles to go in turn to get water, adding that the Lagos Building Control Agency would assess two of the four buildings affected to determine if they could still be occupied by the traders, and urged the traders to support the government in situating a water source close to the market.
