Fire destroys GH¢100,000 worth of car spare parts at Nkoranza Magazine
Fire gutted a shop at Nkoranza Magazine destroying vehicle spare parts worth about GH¢100,000 belonging to Madam Yaa Konadu, an Nkoranza-based businesswoman.
Madam Konadu 40, told the Ghana News Agency that she had not opened the shop for the past three years because she was sick and receiving herbal treatment.
Mr Evans Osei-Worae, Nkoranza South Municipal Coordinator of National Disaster Management Organisation said the cause of the fire is being investigated by the Ghana National Fire Service.
He suspected that the fire originated from a nearby mechanic workshop since there were traces of some embers of burnt substances.
Mr Osei-Worae urged landlords to ensure that electrical gadgets in their houses are used properly by their tenants to prevent domestic fires.
He appealed to community fire volunteers to monitor activities of people who use fire, such as hunters and palm wine tappers to prevent bushfires.
