Kade Goil Station catches fire

The Goil Filling station at Kade at the weekend got burnt when a petrol tanker discharging fuel caught fire.

Also burnt was the tanker with registration number GW 1396 Y.

The Kade Office of the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) is investigating the cause of the fire.

Eyewitness account had it that, as the tanker was discharging its load of diesel, there was a spark and followed immediately by an explosion engulfing the station and the tanker.

Volunteers rushed to the scene and using sand and water fought the fire for about an hour before putting it off.

The Kade Fire Station, which is only about 50 metres from the scene, has no fire tender thus rendering Firemen, who rushed to the scene almost helpless. All they did was to give instructions to volunteer fire fighters on what to do.

A distress call was sent to the Akyem Oda Office of the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) and they got to the scene about an hour later after the fire had been put off.
