A petrol tanker has exploded at Forte Oil filling station near the local airport in Lagos State.
The explosion which occurred when the tanker was discharging its contents has resulted in a massive blaze at the facility.
Officials of the fire service are trying to contain the inferno.
It is yet to be ascertained if there are casualties as a result of the incident.
The airport itself, just across the road, has not been affected by the fire.
The incident has caused a gridlock in the Ikeja axis of the state.
