UNILAG Science Block gutted by fire this morning

What could have been a major disaster was averted this morning as fire gutted the University of Lagos’ Faculty of Science, Maths Department block.

Though, the cause of the fire and the extent of damages cannot be ascertained as at time of filing this report, it generated so much panic among students and the university staff around. It however took the prompt intervention of fire fighters to keep the fire from spreading to other blocks in the faculty.

While some suggested the fire could have started from a melted cable, others suggested that it could be a result of high voltage electricity supply from the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN), but efforts by P.M.NEWS to speak to some of the school staff was abortive. None of them was ready to speak on the issue.

A staff who managed to speak under condition of anonymity told our reporter that “It is just a minor thing. Everything is under control. No cause for alarm. Nobody is sure of what actually caused the fire, but the good news is that everything is under control.”

The students of the Mathematics department have however been urged to remain calm and not allow the situation affect their academic activities.
