Fire has gutted a Chinese company in Obuasi; destroying a 12-bedroom house, a warehouse, and an unspecified amount of money.

The fire which started on the company’s roof about 6 am on Thursday morning was discovered by a passerby who notified the occupants and later prompted fire officials.

“One side of the building was destroyed. We called the fire service officials,” a worker at the company, Vida Antwi said.

According to her, the Fire Service delayed in responding to their call and this compelled them to salvage whatever they could.
