More than twenty (20) shops at the Kumasi Central Market have been obliterated because of a fire flare-up toward the end of last night.
It is assessed that great many Ghana cedis have been lost in harms by merchants on the lookout.
In spite of the fact that the reason for the fire episode is at this point unclear, onlookers said it began around 8pm on Sunday, April 18 at one part of the market and it spread to different regions.
An observer, Alhassan Idris disclosed to Citi News that: "I was snoozing when I knew about the fire flare-up at the Kumasi Central market. I hurried to the market, and the facts used to demonstrate that there was a fire flare-up. So I attempted to assist with containing the fire. As of the opportunity I went to the market, I was urgent to help extinguished the fire, so I didn't actually ask what caused it."
ACFO Henry Giwah, the Ashanti Regional Deputy Commander of the Ghana National Fire Service who addressed the media, grumbled about the difficulties they confronted attempting to get to the location of the fire.
"We got a pain call around 8:48 pm that there was a fire flare-up at the Central market, so we immediately dispatched our men. At the point when they showed up, they saw that the entire spot had been overwhelmed by the fire, influencing around 27 shops. So they attempted to limit it so it would not spread further. Openness is consistently an issue here. It's a major issue. The obstruction from the brokers was not additionally acceptable. Calfskin and turpentine items were included so when you put out the fire, before you understand, it has reignited," he said.
