Fire has gutted some parts of the new Kejetia Market in Kumasi.
The inferno which started around 4:30pm, destroyed parts of the Ashanti regional facility on Wednesday, March 15, 2023.
The cause of the fire is not yet known but it is spreading to other parts of the market.
Personnel of the Ghana National Fire Service are currently battling to put out the raging fire.
Response from the Ghana Fire Service was impeded because some access routes to the market had been taken over by trading sheds.
Three fire tenders are currently on site with a fourth tender on its way to help put off the raging inferno.
This comes barely a week after some parts of the market got flooded after a heavy downpour.
