By Dipo Olowookere
A fire incident occurred at the warehouse of Guinness Nigeria Plc located in the Ogba area of Lagos State on Thursday morning.
According to reports, the unfortunate incident, which started in the wee hour of the day, affected the building where the company’s plastic crates are stored.
It took the intervention of officials of the Lagos State Fire Service to put the fire under control after receiving an emergency call when it started.
Though the cause of the fire was not known, the fire-fighters have promised a thorough investigation to know what actually triggered the inferno, while the area has been cordoned off.
It was gathered that more properties would have been destroyed in the fire if not for the prompt response of the company to the incident.
The safety measures put in place by the management of Guinness Nigeria ensured that no life was lost to the inferno.
Business Post reports that this was not the first time in recent times Guinness Nigeria has recorded a fire incident at its premises.
Recall that in 2019, there was a fire outbreak at the Aba, Abia State plant of the company located in the Osisioma Industrial Layout. The place serves as a logistics centre.
At the incident, the inferno destroyed some properties but was swiftly contained and put under control by the Aba Fire Services, with assistance from neighbouring companies.
