Fire service personnel had a difficulty accessing the area mainly occupied by persons of northern extraction partly because it is not properly demarcated and fire tenders could not also drive through.

No causality has been recorded at the time of visit by our news team.

As at press time, officials of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) from the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) were yet to visit the scene of fire in order to assess the extent of damage caused to property.
