Valuable documents being printed by Minipack printing press in Kokomlemle, Accra have been destroyed by fire on Tuesday, January 3, 2023.
The fire, which started at about midday, is suspected to have been caused by power fluctuation.
All printing machines, five in all, plus other equipment have been burnt.
The Ghana National Fire Service was called to the scene after smoke was seen coming out from the press.
The Business Manager of the facility, Mr. Sam Yeboah who was distraught noted that they have lost about a million cedis.
“Finished printing jobs for the GRA – vehicle tax stamps for nationwide distribution all burnt,” he said.
Mr. Yeboah explained that the fire did not only destroy products but also machines which cost a lot of money.
Meanwhile, the Ghana National Fire Service is alarmed by the increase in cases since December 2022.
The Service says they recorded about 624 fire cases in December 2022 – a 10% increment compared to 2021.
They noted that over 226 of those cases were recorded in a week – between December 25 and December 31.
The Service is urging Ghanaians to be cautious, especially in this harmattan weather.
