The Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) is investigating the fire outbreak and is yet to establish the cause of the fire.

Speaking to Citi News, the Public Relations Officer of the Ghana National Fire Service, James Kwarteng, denied claims that his outfit didn’t arrive at the scene on time.

“We are still investigating, we don’t want to take a guess, we just want to be sure of what we are looking for, so I will just say that we should be patient and let’s complete the investigation,” he said.
