If not for residents, a mother of 3 would have been burnt to ashes after fire engulfed her house in Lagos in a bungalow building at 11 Morounfolu Street, Otubu bus stop, Agege, Lagos, today.
However, she was rescued alive, but with minor burns. She had been trapped inside the fire without anyone knowing before search and rescue efforts were focused on her room and this led to her being rescued alive.
She was later taken to an undisclosed hospital by her relation.
The cause of the fire was unknown. NEMA, Manufacturer Association of Nigeria (MAN) Fire Service, State Fire Service, Police and LASEMA Fire Service Unit responded to the distress alert.
