The popular Soul Lounge located in Kubwa, Abuja was on Thursday gutted by fire.
Recall that Authorities of The Federal Capital Territory, FCT, on Monday demolished a popular night club, Caramelo Lounge.
Few days later, a fire incident that started at about 6:15p.m has consumed popular Soul Lounge located in Kubwa, Abuja .
According to Mr. Eli Mathias, Assistant Superintendent, Fire Service, Kubwa Division, the cause of the fire was suspected to be from a power surge on one of the bar sockets.
“It started from one of the sockets which powered several musical gadgets,” he said.
He applauded the efforts of people at the scene who tried to quench the fire before the arrival of fire fighters.
“Efforts to put the fire under control by the crowd was impressive but it was beyond them before our arrival,” he said.
Mathias, however, said that no life was lost as fun seekers at the bar and club were quick to evacuate the scene before it escalated.
