“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 we moved in and accessed the situation.
“The Manhyia Fire Station came in and we realised that one fire
engine cannot put out the fire. So we requested for another engine
that is the Tech Fire Station they also came in to assist
and we brought the fire under control.”
Property worth thousands of cedis was destroyed by the fire.
The Fire Service is conducting investigations into the cause of
the fire and would inform the public accordingly.
