Information coming in indicates that fire has gutted Makola market in Accra this morning. According to a TV3 report by Joseph Armstrong intercepted by CitizenOne, the fire started around 9:30am this morning at a location called King Kong market
Fire Service Station located within the market was called to attend to the fire. Unfortunately their fire tenders had no fuel and water according to eye witnesses. By the time they fueled their vehicles and filled them with water, the brazing fire had gotten out of control.
As of the time of filing this report, more than five fire tenders were around trying to contain the devastating situation. But it doesn't look like they will succeed in putting out the wild fire anytime soon.
Police and Ambulance Services are around to help with possible crimes and injuries that may arise out if the fire outbreak.
It is not clear as to what exactly caused the fire. However, some eye witnesses think the eratic power supply could contribute to the inferno.
Traders who had their lifetime earnings invested there were spotted waling as goods and properties worth millions of Ghana cedis burn away.
