The management of Ascon Oil has responded to the recent fire outbreak at its Lekki Phase One petrol station.

The fire broke out at the station on Thursday, March 26, and engulfed vehicles parked by the side of the road.

There was however no life lost in the incident, according to a statement released by the management via Facebook.

The statement reads:

“The fire incident at Ascon Oil filling station at Lekki Phase 1 this afternoon has been contained.”

“Contrary to earlier speculations, the main building and the reservoirs are unaffected. The incident emanated from a discharge at the point of offloading product from a tanker, engulfing two tankers and some vehicles parked by the road side.”

“It was an accident compounded by the current fuel scarcity in the country with ASCON OIL being one of the few stations with a reliable steady supply even in times of scarcity.”

“No life was lost to the incident, the pumps are intact and emergency fire service officers were already on site containing the flames as at the time of this report.”

The management of ASCON OIL also reaffirmed its commitment to serving its customers even in the face of accidents.
