Several properties have been razed down in a fire outbreak at the Dome Market in the Ga East District of the Greater Accra region Wednesday evening.
Personnel from the Ghana National Fire Service had a tough time battling to bring the raging fire under control.
It is not clear what caused the fire.
Properties running into thousands of cedis were lost to the fire which swept through the market around 8pm.
The Greater Accra Regional Commander of the Fire Service, DCFO Ebenezer Simpson, told Accra-based Citi FM that had it not been the swiftness of personnel he dispatched to the scene, the damages would have been more.
The Fire Service has since commenced investigations into the cause of the fire.
“We need to do some overhauling, check out what goes on, the activities carried out at the place that is severely charred and we have to interrogate those who use that container and other things for us to arrive at what caused the fire,” Mr. Simpson said
