Some 50,000 people were ordered to flee their homes north of Los Angeles on Thursday as a fast-moving wildfire driven by high winds erupted and raged out of control.

The fire gutted Sabo market in Sagamu, Ogun State early Tuesday morning.

The cause of the fire is not yet ascertained and details are still sketchy.

This was gathered in a video obtained from social media which was uploaded by a yet-to-be-identified user.

According to local reports and as can be seen in the video above, the fire has already razed down some parts of the market and no firefighter was sighted.

Inside the video, a yet-to-be-identified man can be seen pointing towards the market stalls where kola nuts are being sold that have been razed by fire.
