[Updated 3:45 p.m. ET] By the CNN Wire Staff LAGOS, Nigeria (CNN) - An airliner carrying 153 people crashed Sunday in a residential neighborhood in Nigeria's most populated city, setting off fires and causing pandemonium at the scene.
Mohammed Sani Sidi, director general of Nigeria's National Emergency Management Agency, said Sunday evening that authorities are not yet detailing how many people on the plane or on the ground in Lagos died in the crash.
"They're still going through the wreckage," added Patrick Abbah, the general manager for search and rescue from the same agency, at 8:15 p.m. (3:15 p.m. ET). "We haven't had any survivors yet."
The Dana Air flight destined for Lagos from Abuja crashed in the early afternoon into a building, said Akande Iyiola, zone coordinator with the emergency management agency. The neighborhood was about five miles from the city's airport, said Abbah.
The crash triggered three house fires, said Labaran Ahmed, a rescue officer with the agency.
Speaking to CNN around 6:15 p.m., Sidi described the scene as "devastation."
"All efforts are being put together to make sure that a rescue is carried out now," he said.
Hundreds upon hundreds of civilians were gathered around the crash site Sunday afternoon and evening, along with rescue workers and security personnel. Yet at that point, there were no lights on and the area hadn't been cordoned off.
"Everybody is present," said Abbah, referring to firefighters, security and more. "It's all hands on deck."
While the emergency management director said around 6:15 p.m. that "the fire has been stopped now," a CNN reporter on the scene about 45 minutes later could still see "orange flames."
