A bus transporting textiles worth millions of Naira caught fire on 3rd mainland bridge yesterday.
The driver was rescued, however; the textiles were burnt to ashes, Global Village Extra reports.
According to the report:
The incident occurred around 4pm, when the bus, a Volkswagen LT model, marked AGL 914 XE, heading for Lagos Island suddenly caught fire while in motion.
Reports say  that the fire which occurred on Oko-Baba axis of the bridge was attributed to carelessness on the part of the lone occupant of the bus who was not in possession of a fire extinguisher at the time of the incident.
Motorists on the bridge were said to have put a distress call across to the state fire service, having tried endlessly to fight the fire which raged for about an hour.
Director, Lagos State Fire Services, Razaq Fadipe, confirmed the development, lamenting that the incident could have been averted, if the driver had a fire extinguisher on board.
’It is unfortunate that the driver who happened to be the lone occupant of the commercial bus was not in possession of a fire extinguisher and this was why everything was burnt beyond recognition,’’ he
Here is some footage from the incident:
