An explosion in a warehouse has sparked a major fire in Lagos, Nigeria's largest city and commercial capital.
Reports say a building storing fireworks in the largest market area of Lagos Island exploded, and the ensuing blaze spread to up to nine buildings.
The blast reportedly shook windows of homes miles away and a thick cloud of smoke could be seen over the city.
Several people have been injured but it remains unclear if there were any fatalities.
