This is contained in a statement released by the agency and signed by its Director, Mrs Magaret Adeseye, on Tuesday in Lagos.
She said that additional reports would be made available to the public as soon as investigation into the cause of the incident is completed.
The service boss said that the fire ensued from an industrial generator that burst into flames, adding that the fire service was notified of the incident at about 10.03 am.
