The 37 Military hospital is filled to capacity, following the death of about 100 people in  a deadly Goil filling station fire at Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra.

As at the time of filing this report, security officials at the scene of that devastation were exploring the possibility of transporting the bodies of some of the victims to the Police Hospital morgue.

The heavy downpour in the capital rendered several places flooded and also led to power outages in several communities. Reports suggest that the fire service personnel struggled to fight the inferno last night. Officially, it is unclear what sparked the blaze at the service station.

Pulse.com.gh has learnt that the Fire service has been able to put out the fire and officers from the police and the military are at the scene to ensure calm.

It is not clear what started the fire that completely destroyed the filling station next to the GCB Bank Circle Tower branch, and also burnt several houses and shops, but eyewitnesses suspect fuel-laden floods could have imported the fire which trapped many who had sought refuge from torrential rains that cut off several communities from major roads.
