In a devastating incident, a raging fire swept through several shops located at CMB, behind Kantamanto in Accra, resulting in the destruction of goods worth millions of Ghana cedis. The cause of the fire, which ignited around 5:00 am on Sunday, remains a mystery, leaving traders and authorities puzzled.


The Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) promptly dispatched firefighters to the scene in an attempt to combat the inferno. However, by the time the fire brigade arrived, the flames had already spread to numerous shops, making it a challenging battle.
