A tanker laden with petrol has fallen on the Festac Link Bridge in Awuwo
Odofin LGA of Lagos State, burning at least 20 vehicles and four commercial
The fire started on Wednesday, December 13, 2017 at noon, after the
fallen tanker spilled its content.
It was reported that firefighters did not have enough water, even after
arriving 30 minutes later.
Olufemi Popoola, a witness, said the truck was ascending a bridge when
it suddenly rolled back and fell.
The impact of the fall separated the tank from the body, resulting in an
explosion, according to Popoola.
“The fire then spilled into a car shop on the foot of the bridge,
burning some of the cars, while the attendants quickly drove out some,” he
“Furniture items, bags and boxes displayed for sale on the foot of the
bridge all burnt.”

The fire caused gridlock on the bridge and in the adjoining roads.
