There was a fire outbreak at the Federal Civil Service Secretariat, Abuja early Saturday morning.

It was learnt that the blaze which started from an office on the third floor in the Ministry of Tourism had destroyed electronic items and items of furniture before it was put off by men of the fire service.

It was learnt that the fire was observed by some security personnel who raised the alarm which drew the attention of emergency rescue workers around the area.

Men of the Federal and FCT Fire Services who were informed about the incident arrived shortly after and extinguished the fire.

The Director-General, Federal Capital Territory Emergency Service, Alhaji Abass Idriss stated that the fire had been brought under control.

No Fire outbreak in health Ministry- Health Minister

The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, said there was no fire outbreak in the health ministry, but just a spark on the corridors of the third floor.
He was reacting to reports carried on Channels Television which quoted an unarmed eyewitness that the building housing the Federal Ministry of Health was on fire in the early hours of Saturday.
According to the report, firefighters were, however, battling at the scene trying to put out the inferno.
But Adewole told our correspondent that the report was “false.”
“The report is false, there was just a spark in the corridors of the third floor and it has been put off. It was just an electrical spark that has been put off. No part of the ministry has been affected. No office was affected,” the minister said.
