Fire has destroyed about 30 wooden structures at Krofrom in the Ashanti Regional Capital, Kumasi.
The cause of the fire which ignited on Tuesday, May 11 around 2:00 am hasn’t been identified yet, though fire officers are still investigating into the main cause.
The Manhyia District Commander of the Ghana National Fire Service, D.O 1 Amos Abban, validated the incident to Citi News.
“We received a distress call at 02:11 am that there was a fire outbreak at Krofom. We dispatched our first engine to the scene and when we got there, we realized that we needed another engine to support the first one, so we called for another engine to come in. We managed to bring the fire under control at 02:44 am”, he said.
In the meantime, the firefighters say they are taking steps to ascertain the cause of the blaze.
“We are investigating the cause of the fire. When the cause is known, we will let the public know. We understand that the fire started two hours before we were informed. So we advise that anytime there is an outbreak, the public should call us on time.
