He added that the fire started early in the morning and triggered a fire alarm in the cantonment which made everyone to assemble at the scene and start the putting out before the arrival of fire service men. Ochagwuba, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria , said, “The concerted efforts of the emergency responders and the barracks community in bringing the fire under control quickly was quite commendable. “Other emergency service like the Federal Road Safety Corps also responded and assisted in controlling traffic at the cantonment bus stop. “The Commander, Army Headquarters Garrison, Maj Gen.
