Fire guts popular ‘NTA motor park’ in Jos

The NTA Park, a popular motor park in Jos, has been gutted by fire.

Matthew Edogbonya, spokesperson of the Federal Fire Service in Plateau, was unavailable to comment on the matter, as he said to be engaged at the fire scene.

A senior service officer, who preferred anonymity, confirmed the situation to journalists.

The officer said the source of the fire was still unknown, adding that the service had deployed its men to contain the situation.

“The PRO and other key officers of the command are on the scene of the fire incident and can’t talk now.

“We can’t say what is the cause of the fire outbreak, but our men have been deployed to the scene to prevent further damage by the fire.

“At the moment, we can’t say the level of damage, our immediate concern is to stop the fire from destroying property and human lives,” he said.

The motor park is located opposite the NTA Jos Network Centre on the Yakubu Gowon way, Jos.
