Firefighters douse five-hour inferno at Takoradi Market 1

Seven fire engines were deployed to battle a fire which broke out at the Takoradi Market in the Western Region, Saturday.

The fire which started at about 12:30 am comes after a similar incident was recorded at the Ejura market in the Ashanti Region earlier this week.

The blaze which occurred on the Kingston Avenue at the Takoradi Market Circle destroyed about five stores, the CNR reported.

First Samuel, a popular provision shop at the market was also not spared in the inferno, the website reported.

Several groceries were destroyed in the fire-outbreak which took five hours before it was finally put under control, according to a spokesperson of the Western Regional Fire Command.

The incident also comes barely a day after a fire destroyed a number of structures at a kiosk estate at Shiashie in Accra.

Part of the Electoral Commission’s Greater Accra Regional office was also gutted by fire on Friday.

A joint police and fire service investigation has started in all the separate incidents.
