More than a month ago, the Makola storey building caught fire and burned down almost completely from top to bottom. The fire was so hot that extremely combustible things such as body spray burst out like a bomb, causing the fire to burn even hotter. The terrible part of the story is that the Ghana Fire Service station was only a few minutes away from the fire, but they were unable to put out the flames in time. Even when they arrived at the site, their van was devoid of water, and their water holes were broken.
Following the tragedy, everyone with a store in the building was forced to evacuate quickly in order to avoid any injuries. The structure remained for a few weeks before being demolished to make space for the construction of a new structure. The location has completely changed as a result of the demolition of the building that previously occupied the space.
People are undoubtedly wondering if, after the new building is up and running, the people who had a store in the old one will be given a second chance to work in the new one, or if the old one will be sold to them.
