Fire has razed down several shops including a Latex foam wholesale in the Bono East Regional Capital, Techiman.
According to the the Regional Fire Commander, A.C.F.O George Anin Frimpong who spoke to the media, the incident started around 12:40 pm on Monday, April 12. He said his team employed every effort but had to call for reinforcement from other fire stations outside Techiman.
“When we got there, we realised that the fire was too thick and will take some time to extinguish it, so quickly we called on the Nkoranza fire station to dispatch its appliance. We then relayed to Ghana North. They also had two fire tenders which they brought on board. So in all, we had six fire tenders on the ground”,
He added that the cause of the fire is not yet known at the moment but investigations have began to find out what started the fire.
The Commander in responding to the Media about the extent of devastation caused said, items worth thousands of Ghana Cedis have been destroyed.
