Fire has gutted parts of the Kantamanto market in Accra’s central business district.
The fire reportedly started around 10 pm on Tuesday, December 15, 2020, according to an eyewitness who spoke to Citi News.
By 10:20 pm, the fire had gone out of control and some onlookers run to the nearby fire station to request help.
Fire service personnel reportedly got to the scene at around 11 pm, and tried to help douse the fire that has so far destroyed many goods including clothes.
It remains unclear what may have started the fire. A similar incident in that same enclave occurred last month with the Accra central branch of GCB Bank when one of the bank’s offices was razed.
