There was pandemonium in Lagos Island on Tuesday morning following a fire outbreak at the popular Balogun market.
A five-storey building housing different businesses was gutted by the fire which started in the early hours of Tuesday.
Men of the fire service and other emergency services were spotted at the scene of the inferno, making frantic efforts to put it out.
In videos circulating the internet, shop owners were seen trying to rescue a few goods from some of the yet to be affected parts of the building while others scampered for safety.
Till this moment, the cause of the fire which has destroyed goods and properties worth millions of naira is yet to be ascertained by our reporter.
