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

Mr Matthew Edogbonya, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Federal Fire Service in Plateau State, was unavailable to comment on the issue.

A senior officer of the service, who preferred anonymity, confirmed the situation to NAN in Jos.

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.

NAN reports that the motor park is located opposite the NTA Jos Network Centre on the Yakubu Gowon way, Jos. (NAN)
