 An 11 year old boy has been confirmed dead at the site of fire cracker explosion in Lagos as a number of buildings are now set ablaze as a result of the explosion.

About 15 houses are on fire after a huge explosion went off at the Oroyiyin\Jankara axis on Lagos Island, Lagos state, Nigeria’s south-west region.

The South-West spokesperson for the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Ibrahim Farinloye, confirmed that one person died from the explosion, while a number of people sustained minor injuries.
Our correspondent at the scene of the inferno said the explosion occurred after a warehouse used to store fireworks was set ablaze following an accidental trigger of the stored fire crackers.

The fire reportedly spread to the two nearby buildings and has further affected 15 other adjoining buildings.
