When our correspondent visited the bank, there was a huge thick smoke covering the premises while staff, visitors, customers, and passers-by were seen standing at a safe distance outside the bank.

Policemen from the Victoria Island police station barricaded the road to the bank with their patrol van.

A source at the bank said ” we heard the fire alarm and we all ran out of the banking hall. I learned the fire outbreak was caused by the diesel generating set. The generating set is on fire but has not spread to the building”

A fire service tanker was seen rushing to the scene of the fire about 8.30am at the time of filing this report.
