Abuja, Aug 20 - A fire gutted the headquarters of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Wednesday but no one was killed or injured in the incident, an official said.

Spokesman of the NFF Ademola Olajire said the fire started on the third floor of the building, called Glass House, at Wuse Zone of the Nigerian capital Abuja. He, however, could not say specifically the cause of the fire, reports Xinhua.

The fire, which raged for almost one hour, was later extinguished by fire-fighters led by the assistant controller of the Federal Fire Service, Eyo Ime.

Ime suspected an electrical fault on the third floor of the building as the cause of the fire.
