Over 10 wooden structures in the Krofrom Market have been destroyed by fire.
These wooden shacks serve as homes and shops for the inhabitants. Currently, no casualties have been reported as a result of the incident.
According to the Manhyia Divisional Officer of the Ghana Fire Service, DO1 Abban, they received the distress calls at about 2:00am on Tuesday and proceeded to the market to put out the fire.
“The shacks are built anyhow and accessibility within the structure is very difficult. We have not received any report of any casualty, but as you can see, the whole structure is burnt down. We received the distress call at 02:11hrs and moved in and assessed the situation.
“Officers from the Manhyia Fire Station came in and we realised that one fire engine cannot put out the fire. So we requested another engine, that is the Tech Fire Station. They also came in to assist and we brought the fire under control.”
Properties worth thousands of cedis were destroyed by the fire.
The Fire Service are currently conducting their investigations into the cause of the fire and would inform the public accordingly.
