The Ketu Plank Market, situated at Demuren Street in Ketu, Lagos is reportedly on fire right now.
It is not clear what caused this fire outbreak, as the traders are not in the market, and over 200 shops in the market are at risk of been totally engulfed by fire.
There is urgent need of intervention by the Fire Services right now. Most people are sleeping, and since wood is highly combustible, immediate attention is needed before the fire escalates further. The fire is raging and already spreading to houses and shops around the area.
It will be recalled that the market also witnessed a nasty fire outbreak in August 2010.
