It happened in a warehouse at the cargo area of the airport.

Once again, another tragedy at Lagos... another "accident"...
I would not call it accident..more like complete negligence in safety, just like the regular crashes, fires and theft. Notice the "Firefighters using a single water-hose". in the BBC news item.

A few months ago, more than 1,000 people died trying to flee a blast in an arms warehouse...


If there is a will, there is a way

Also read where 50 killed/200 injured in rioting related to something someone wrote in a newspaper over there re: the Miss World pagent, Allah, and other related stuff that some Muslims took severe issue with.

Don't know if that's related to the airport fire/explosion, but in any event, Nigeria seems to be the place NOT to be at the moment...
