DO2 Nicholas Poku Antwi, in charge of regional operations at the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS), confirmed the swift deployment of fire engines from Chirapatre, KMA, and Manhyia stations as the nearest tender at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) was out of service.

A fire outbreak has reduced four shops to ashes at Ayigya in the Oforikrom Municipality of the Ashanti Region.

DO2 Nicholas Poku Antwi, in charge of regional operations at the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS), confirmed the swift deployment of fire engines from Chirapatre, KMA, and Manhyia stations as the nearest tender at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) was out of service.

He stated that although there were no reported casualties, the cause of the fire remains under investigation.

“Four shops that the fire engulfed that was where they tackled and now the fire is out. Fire engines from KMA, Manhyia and Chirapatre came because when they saw how the fire was raging, they immediately called two additional pumps to come and make sure the fire was suppressed as early as possible. The items that were salvaged were more than the items that got burnt”, the fire officer stated.

“Nobody got injured. We have to make sure we do excavation and other things and come up with the actual cause of the fire”, he indicated.
