Two new generational bank buildings at Adetokunbo Ademola Street, Victoria Island, Lagos State has been gutted by fire on 26th August Wednesday.
It was gathered that one of the banks gutted fire after a petrol tanker exploded near it which spread to the other bank besides it.
Unconfirmed reports say a fuel tanker laden with presumable diesel was at the premises of one of the banks to discharge its product.
In the process, an explosion from a yet-to-be-identified source occurred, igniting a massive fire, which soon spread to a neighbouring bank’s building.
Kemi Filani News learned that firefighters are currently battling to put out the blaze.
