A witness who tweeted a video of the fire captured large plumes of black smoke billowing up from behind the white cube-like building..Douglass acknowledged the FCT Fire Service received a call at 11:55 a.m. on Monday about a tanker explosion inside the generator building on Diplomatic Drive in Abuja’s central business district. Once the fire was subdued, she said it went back to the station at 1 p.m. She was unable to confirm whether any of the people killed or hospitalized by the explosion and fire held Canadian citizenship. CBC News reached out to Global Affairs Canada for details about the incident, but it did not receive a response.
