A commercial bus, popularly called ‘danfo’ in Lagos caught fire Wednesday morning around 8am at CMS, just by BRT bus stop.


Fortunately, no one was injured as all passengers managed to run out of the bus before it was completely engulfed.

Eye witnesses said Lastma officials got to the scene like 3 minutes after the occurrence and they maintained free flow of traffic and contacted the fire service immediately. But till the bus burned out, no fire service was seen.

Thank God no one was hurt. But na wa to the fire services and to the so called LASTMA. They should have blocked that road because it's not safe. See as people are just driving past it, a bus engulfed in flames. Thats dangerous...

Thank God no lives were lost. God has done it again. Why it caught on fire who knows. But as usual the fire service in Nigeria is very bad. Why did the fire fighters not come? They're payed by taxpayers which the motovehicle drivers are also paying. There has been many other cases where fire services won't come til the fire gets out of hand or won't respond to urgent emergency calls. Like I said before, Nigeria needs a great & active fire service. The Governor needs to do something about it. At the same time There's been a lot of fire incidents lately
