“……..life was lost……..”
In the early hours of Friday, a fire incident was recorded at the National Youth Service Corps in Abuja.
The commission appreciated God for the fact that no life was lost during the incident as it only cut the third floor of the six-storey building.
These statements were made by the Director of Press Relations, Eddy Megwa, on Friday.
He said that the fire was immediately put out by the Federal Capital Territory and Federal Fire Service Departments when the building started burning at about 07.30 am.
Mega also said that the affected area of the building is occupied by Planning, Research and Statistics and the General Service Department with the fire affecting only a particular room with electronic gadgets.
He said, “Fortunately enough, no life was lost and all vital documents were quickly evacuated and safeguarded.
“The management of the scheme heartily appreciates the Federal and FCT Fire Service Departments for their prompt response which minimized the effect of the incident.
“Management also appreciates all security agencies for the invaluable roles they played during the unfortunate incident.”
