A fuel station at Ejura Sekyere Odumase in the Ashanti Region has been destroyed following a fire outbreak.

But for the timely intervention of personnel of the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS), the raging fire would have engulfed nearby shops and houses.

Eyewitnesses at the scene of the incident said two persons were seriously injured and had been sent to the Mampong Government Hospital for medical attention.

According to personnel of the fire service, they received a distress call around 3:00pm on Friday about the fire outbreak, but the fire tender at the nearest fire station at Ejura was not immediately available.

This compelled some residents to call on the Mampong Fire Station around 5:30pm, by which time the destruction had occurred before their arrival.

The cause of the fire is not known.

Preliminary investigations say the fire may have been sparked through the leakage of fuel from a loose valve on an underground fuel tank.

On Saturday June 7, another fire outbreak occurred at the Tip Toe lane at the Kwame Nkrumah circle.

More than 100 head porters were rendered homeless when fire gutted a two-storey building. Read more Tip Toe Lane fire caused by 'Kayayei' charging their cells

The blaze started when the head porters, popularly known as ‘Kayayei’, allegedly rushed to charge their phones when power supply was restored after three days of power outage.
