Fire has razed parts of the Kantamanto market in Accra’s central business district.

The fire reportedly started around 10 pm on Wednesday, December 15, 2020, according to an eyewitness who spoke to Citi News.

By 10:20 pm, the fire had gone out of control and some onlookers run to the nearby fire station to request help.

It remains unclear what may have started the fire.

A similar incident in that same enclave occurred last month with the Accra central branch of GCB Bank when one of the bank’s offices was razed.
