There was a fire outbreak at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos this afternoon.

The fire engulfed the second floor of the airport, Daily Post reports. However, it was reportedly doused shortly after it started, preventing any serious damage to the building.

Sources revealed that the fire which started at the second floor of the terminal in the commercial department of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), occurred because of a power surge.

    If there’s a fire on the 2nd floor, why is there a long line of onlookers on the very same floor just mere meters from the flames? Or are the onlookers all part of the Airport’s fire service personnel?

    As long as nobody dies….. Abeg if making it go away is the way we can get the government build a new one, then i sing “….we don’t need no water let the motherf$&ker burn….”
    in fact, why do i see just one side burning? I pray that it spreads wella….

    First, I thought oh goodness gracious of all airports in Nigeria, thank goodness no casualty was reported, then second thought was not sure about this second floor deal and not too much damage at least if the whole thing burnt down. The government would be forced to fix that airport, where the air conditioning does not work. Baggage Converyor Belt seems to always be down. or somehow break down when your bags are being offloaded. Now who knows how long it will take to fix that part if it ever gets done.

    I smell a rat. Someone may be trying to cover up something by setting the fire.
