A section of the Kumasi Central Market is up
in flames and about 18 stalls have been
consumed, Starr News can confirm. According to Starr News’ Ashanti regional
correspondent Isaac Bediako, personnel of the
Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) are
already at the scene disconnecting power
supply to the market to mitigate the impact of
the inferno. He said the fire gutted the Roman Hill Down
portion of the market, which is opposite Solid
FM. Officials of the Ghana National Fire Service
are also fighting the fire, but the immediate
cause of the fire is not known. He said the police are also available to protect
properties as a few of the traders have arrived
at the market to salvage their goods before the
fire spreads to the other parts of the market.
