NIGERIA-FIRE-INCIDENT

Red Cross officials walk past a building on fire after a heavy explosion on December 26, 2012 in Lagos. Fire ripped through a crowded neighbourhood in Nigeria's largest city and wounded at least 30 people after a huge explosion rocked a building believed to be storing fireworks, officials said. Fireworks continued to explode well after the fire began while smoke was heavy and the blaze intense, making it difficult for rescue workers and firefighters to approach the scene.
