A BRANCH of Access Bank on Adetokunbo Ademola Street, Victoria Island, Lagos State was gutted by fire yesterday.
The fire incident that occurred in the morning was sparked off by a petrol tanker explosion around the area. But Federal Fire Service arrived the scene at about 10.20 am.
A post on its Twitter said “Our men are on the ground, trying to combat the inferno. Thanks for notifying us.”
Access Bank confirmed the incident in a tweet, saying no one was harmed and safety protocols have been activated.
“There has been a fire incident at our Adetokunbo Ademola branch this morning. Thankfully, no one was harmed. Our fire protocol has been activated and all personnel have been moved to safety. “Cause of the fire was a diesel truck discharging fuel, we advise you to avoid that area,” the tweet reads.
