The magnificent edifice known as Airport Hotel remains unscratched as fire razes three cars and a transport company situated in the premises of the hospitality outfit.
On Thursday night, April 9, a fire incident occurred inside the premises of Lagos Airport Hotel in Ikeja.
Reports say the fire did not affect the hotel building.
The vehicles affected, according to the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), are a Toyota coaster bus, a Honda civic saloon car, and a Cadillac Escalade car.
LASEMA Director-General, Dr. Damilola Oke-Osanyintolu, said in a statement that a building within the hotel premises was also affected but 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.”
Continuing, Oke-Osanyintolu said, “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.”
