Fire Reduces NASCO House to Ground Zero

The seven-storey Nasco House on Burma Road, Apapa, Lagos, was gutted by fire on Monday night and by mid-day yesterday, the building had collapsed to ground zero, leaving behind a mound of concrete debris and twisted rods. Last week, a six-story building had also collapsed in Maryland area of Lagos. The razing of the Nasco House and the eventual collapse may have thus raised the alarm on the state of buildings in the city.
