In Kantamanto, a fire destroyed shops and homes; it was triggered by a gas explosion.

Hundreds of structures have been destroyed by a devastating fire at CMB Abuja, located behind the Cocobod office in Accra.

It is estimated that 350 structures were destroyed by the fire on Sunday morning.

The catastrophe is attributed by eyewitnesses to a gas explosion.

On Sunday, September 17, an eyewitness told Media General's Emmanuel Samani, "We just heard neighbours screaming 'fire' 'fire' and then there was a deafening blast from the cylinder."

"But fortunately, we all fled and no one was burned or killed. Only real estate"

A shop proprietor, Nana Boakye, stated that he received a distress call at 4:00 a.m. informing him that his store was on fire.

He stated that he drove all the way to Abuja, where he discovered that his establishment had been destroyed by fire.

They are requesting assistance from the government.

Kofi Forson, Deputy Director of Operations for the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS), stated that they received a call at 05:04GMT and dispatched fire tenders from Accra immediately.

"They arrived in less than three minutes, but the fire had reached its ghost stage," he said, describing how they were unable to contain it with any extinguisher.

"In all, we used four appliances including one ambulance and now the situation is under control."

He stated that it is too early to determine the cause of the fire, but preliminary information indicates that there was a gas detonation.
