Fire Service appeals to ECG to disconnect illegal connection
Mr. Gilford Tetteh Adams, the Tema Regional Fire Officer, has advised the Electricity Company of Ghana to conduct regular checks on their connections, especially the markets, to ensure that all illegal connections are eliminated.
Speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in an interview at his office on Wednesday, Mr. Adams said these regular checks would reduce the frequent fire outbreaks in markets and other trading centres.
He appealed to workers and traders to put off all electrical gadgets after the close of work, saying this would not only help them to conserve power, but would also save their premises from fire outbreaks.
Briefing the GNA on the fire outbreak at the Community One Market, which occurred on February 20, Mr. Timothy Affum, the Regional Fire Public Relations Officer, said the personnel detected that the fire started from one of the stores that dealt in fabrics and spread to the others which sold plastic wares.
