At the scene of the incidence, the fire which had already engulfed the whole building was extinguished by men of the Federal Fire Service (FFS) in collaboration with Ekiti Operations Office ERT. Furthermore, due to the dryness of the incoming harmattan season, the environs were damped to avoid secondary fire out break in the neighborhood.

Although the entire building was razed down, there were no injuries or fatality to the occupants and neighbors.
