One of the female hostels at the popular Yaba College of Technology in Lagos has been engulfed by early morning fire.
The female hostel of the Yaba College of Technology (Yaba Tech), was engulfed in inferno which reportedly broke out in the wee hours of Wednesday, and consumed many belongings of female students.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the fire which engulfed ‘Bakassi building’, raged for two hours before the arrival of the fire service.
The fire could not be put out immediately because the college Fire Service ran of water.
There are however no details as to the number of casualties (if any) as the fire has been put out, but sources within the school campus said a student was injured while trying to move her belonging when the fire broke out.
