Pipeline fire kills dozens

first_imgIGBAGBON, Nigeria – A ruptured gasoline pipeline exploded in flames, killing at least 34 people near Nigeria’s main city of Lagos as they tried to scoop fuel from the gushing leak, police said Wednesday. A witness said he saw 40 bodies. The government blamed criminal gangs breaking into pipelines. The explosion, on a line that carries imported gasoline from the Lagos port to inland depots, occurred Tuesday morning at Igbagbon, a village near Lagos. It was a stretch of pipeline in remote swamp waters, and news of the fire only filtered out Wednesday morning. A charred section of bush littered with hundreds of burned and unburned jerry cans and buckets was all that remained of the disaster site Wednesday after firefighters put out the blaze and engineers clamped the rupture.
