Inferno yesterday reduced valuable items to ashes at the Makola Market in Accra after the foremost central business district trading hub was gutted by fire spanning over long period of time.

It took intervention of the Ghana National Fire Service to quench the inferno after long period of struggle amid complaints of lack of water in the fire hydrants.

The visit of Makola Market later today by Mr. Alan Kyeremanten, Michael Adjei Sowah, officials of EPA and NADMO is to assess the extent of damage caused by the inferno to inform measures to prevent future fires.
