PHOTOS: Fire guts Abuakwa-Dadiase market – A/R

Fire has gutted parts of the Abuakwa-Dadiase market in the Atwima Nwabiagya District of the Ashanti Region.

According to reports, the fire, which started around 11pm on Thursday December 28 2017, from one shop with fire crackers, spread to other shops  destroying items worth millions of Ghana cedis.

It is reported  that over 70 stores have been ravaged by the fire.

Meanwhile the cause of the fire is still unknown. But the fire service personnel were  able to douse the fire and prevented it from spreading to other shops.

The Assembly Member for Abuakwa Dadiaso Electoral area Kelvin Akyereko commended the firefighters for their professionalism and swift intervention, if not the entire market would have been razed down.

Some affected traders disclosed that all the goods including their capital have been destroyed by the fire.

“We are appealing to government and stakeholders to come to our aid” they said.
