Fire guts Kantamanto market

Story: Shaibu Mohammed

Parts of the Kantamanto market in Accra have been gutted by fire.

The incident on Tuesday morning destroyed many goods and shops worth thousands of cedis.

It is not clear yet what started the inferno.

Eyewitnesses say initial efforts by the Ghana National Fire Service to douse it did not yield the desired results as they ran out of water in the process.

Some personnel are still at the scene doing their best to halt the blaze.

Other vendors stood by helpless as their wares burned on, waiting for the respite to count their losses.

Despite a brief second-half rally from the South Koreans, Otto Addo’s side picked up all three points to keep them in the race for a Round of 16.

Following the opening-day loss to Portugal, the Black Stars needed to avoid defeat against the Koreans to stave off early elimination from the tournament.

This was clearly on the minds of the players, as a nervy start allowed the South Koreans to dominate the early stages of the game.
