Death toll rises to 10, dozens wounded

The cause of the fire has not been ascertained but reports say it was caused by a leaking tanker at the plant.

Officials of the Lagos State Fire Service are already on the scene, struggling to put out the overwhelming fire.

The inferno is said to have spread to other facilities in the neighbourhood.

A live video from the scene, aired on Channels TV, showed officials of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) carrying casualties on stretchers into a standby vehicle.
