Foam manufacturing company, SaraFoam Nigeria Limited, which is located in the Kirikiri area of Lagos State, has been gutted by fire.

It was learnt that the fire, which started around 1pm, destroyed property and materials worth millions of naira.

Our correspondent learnt that the fire would have spread to The Sun Publishing Limited, which was beside the company, but for the intervention of firemen from the Lagos State Fire Service.

It is the second time in less than three months that fire would gut the company.

The Director of the Lagos State Fire Service, Rasak Fadipe, said three fire trucks were combating the flame with support from firemen from Julius Berger.

In a related development, two fighting tenants set each other’s houses on fire at Awoyaya Elefo in the Lekki area of the state.

The PUNCH learnt that the men, who cut each other with machetes before resorting to arson, sustained injuries and were rushed to a hospital in the area.

Three houses were said to have been burnt down by the fire before firemen from the Lekki Phase II of the state fire service responded.

Fadipe, who also confirmed the incident, warned residents to be more careful as the dry season approaches.

“Everybody needs to be careful because we are gradually approaching the dry season when fire disasters are rampant. We must learn to switch off all electrical appliances not in use and be careful with the way we handle petrol. When there is any fire emergency, people must learn to call the fire service as soon as possible before the situation gets out of hand,” he added.
