A fuel-laden tanker went up in flames at Toyota Bus-stop, near Oshodi in Lagos on Thursday.
The 44,000 litre-tanker reportedly fell on its side while in motion, thereby discharging its content.
The inferno caused traffic congestion and apprehension among people in the area.
Lagos State fire and emergency service officials arrived the scene shortly after the incident to curtail the inferno.
