The Lagos State Fire Service has decried the incessant fire outbreaks in the state, noting that it had become an issue of crucial concern to the government.
The Director of the Fire Service, Mr. Rasak Fadipe, gave the warning yesterday after visiting scenes of recent fire outbreaks in the state. He said six corpses were recently retrieved from fire scenes while 15 persons were rescued alive from such incidents.
According to him, the state Fire Service responded to 257 fire emergency calls within the month, while 14 emergency calls to the firemen were found to be false.
He condemned those whom he said were fond of making false calls to the service, while appealing to those concerned to desist from such act.
