The central market in Akim Oda has gut fire with lots of shops burned and properties lost. The fires started at about 8 pm. Some of the residents have blamed the National Fire Service Personnel because they claim when they arrived on the scene, the fire was minimal so they wanted to get inside the market and help people get their things out, but they were prevented until the ECG puts the light off.
They added that the Fire service personnel also hesitated in putting out the fire and the delay caused the fire to throughout the market. The market is very large with lots of shops and with the intensity of the fire, lots of shops have been destroyed.
During the evening, it started to rain in the town and the lights kept going off and on. With this many believe that the fire started as a result of an electrical fault due to how the lights were going off and on.
