Warehouse building in Accra’s Central Bussiness District destroyed by fire

A Wholesale store known as MOOVED Home Appliances housed in a storey building located at Opera Square, has been gutted and destroyed by fire.

The fire outbreak in the property, which is opposite the Melcom building, close to the Central Bank in Accra, was reported around 4.30pm on Monday..

The Ghana Fire Service personnel were quickly on the scene, which is close to the Central Bank with more than five fire tenders putting out the fire.

Although the affected building located in the Central Business District also houses GT Bank and the Bank of Africa, the two financial institutions have not really been affected.

The only cause for worry is that the server room of GT Bank has been affected by the fire.

Reports suggest that an electrician who was welding something on top of the building may have caused the fire.

Investigations is under way by the fire service into the cause of the inferno.
