The management of Lagos Airport Hotel Limited, Ikeja, on Friday said the facility was not affected by the fire that broke out from a car park in front of the hotel

The hotel’s Managing Director, Mr Kayode Bakare, said fire only affected three vehicles at the car park.

“The fire did not extend to any building or property of the hotel. Prompt response by the Lagos State Fire Service and men of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency helped in extinguishing the fire and dousing the tension.

“The cause of the fire outbreak is yet to be established while investigation into the incident is ongoing,” the statement read in part.
