Fire has ravaged a nursery school at Madina in the late hours of Wednesday, February 3, 2021.

The inferno also gutted a carpentry workshop where eyewitnesses suspect the incident may have emanated, in a vicinity known as Social Welfare.

It is unclear what exactly triggered the development which started at about 9:30 pm and continued up the two-storey Golden Angel Nursery School.

Property running into tens of thousands of cedis have been charred.

However, no casualty was recorded.

Residents say the personnel from the Ghana National Fire Service were unable to quench the blaze which lasted for about 3 hours, and reportedly vacated the scene to refill their tank.

“The fire service was here a moment ago but they left because their water got finished,” a resident Dennis Ablordeppey said.

Residents in the township gathered helpless and watched as the fire raged on from a distance.

Meanwhile, some social media users have shared visuals of the outbreak online.
