Balls of fire were seen enveloping the atmosphere, as fire fighters battled to put out the fire.
Director General, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, LASEMA, Dr. Femi Oke-Osanyintolu confirmed the development.
Also, the Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Fire Service, Ahmodu Shakiru said that vehicles parked at the premises were gutted by fire, not the hotel.
“Lagos State Fire Service has put off the fire scare,” he said.
The management of the hotel said the fire did not engulf the edifice but that “the hotel has a partner who operates a transport (tour) business. One of his buses caught fire and it affected another vehicle.”
