The fire bellowing within the Treasury House, the building housing the office of the Accountant-general of the federation in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, which affected the AGF’s office and some other offices within the complex has been put out.
But the cause of the inferno, which began at 10 am on Wednesday, is yet unknown.
Fire fighters were said to have battled to put out the fire with workers and sympathizers assisting them.
WESTERN POST learnt that they were later joined by officials of National Emergency Management Agency and police men all in a bid to end the fire.
It was gathered, however, that the fire started from the third floor and razed most parts of the building upwards including the floor where the Accountant-general’s office is situated.
