Fire At Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) by Lanreclassic(m): 1:26pm On Dec 20, 2012

A small electrical fire was on Thursday morning reported at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos.

An eyewitness said the fire emanated from some cables, which apparently melted under heat, as some welders were working at the extension of ā€˜Dā€™ Wing of the international airport.

Airport officials swiftly cut off power supply to the arrival and departure terminals, in order to forestall any untoward development and isolated the scene of the spark.

Fire fighters were also deployed in the affected area and were able to put the situation under control.

Securitymen also erected a metal barricade around the site.

Power supply was restored to the airport terminal within a few minutes.

Flight operations were, however, not affected while the incident lasted.
