The fire outbreak at the Christ Embassy Church headquarters on Billings Way, Oregun, Lagos State, is yet to be contained hours after emergency responders moved to the scene.

Daily Trust had reported how the church headquarters was gutted by fire in the early hours of Sunday.

When our correspondent got to the scene, security operatives had cordoned off the site.

However, thick smoke was still billowing out of the building painted white.

Daily Trust observed that the fire engulfed the auditorium through the roofs of the building.

Also, workers of the church were seen packing some properties that were not burnt as they redirected worshippers to another branch of the church to observe Sunday service.

The fire incident hampered free flow of traffic as vehicles had to scramble for space to navigate through a narrow road.

The police, soldiers, Fire Service, and Lagos State Traffic Management Authority(LATSMA) were also at the scene.

Fire trucks containing water were seen outside the building as firefighters tried different measures to contain the inferno.

The cause of the incident is yet to be identified. It is also unclear if there were casualties.

As of the time of filing this report, the Church authorities have not commented on the incident.(Daily Trust)
