Massive fire outbreak at Kwame Nkrumah circle

Atinkanews has gotten wind of the fire that has gutted the Odorna Market close to the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra.

As many as 80 stalls are reckoned to have been burnt down after fire swept through the Odorna Market, otherwise called the Pedestrian Shopping Mall at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra Wednesday night.

No deaths or injuries were recorded, however eyewitnesses say large quantities of goods of assorted nature belonging to traders were lost while fire personnel have had to battle the raging fire with all they have.

Meanwhile, what caused the fire is not immediately known, but it is hoped that the Fire Service would ensure that it does not spread to affect other areas.

A similar fire devastated the market on July 24, 2013, also on a Wednesday and after traders had closed for the day and locked up, making access by firemen a rather tough one

AtinkaNews is following up on this unfortunate development and will update readers soon.
