Several wooden shops at Akwatia line near the Asawase office of the National Democratic Congress in Kumasi, Ashanti Region were reported to have been razed down by fire.
As of press time yesterday the cause of the fire was not yet known, but victims suspected the fire was caused by a gas explosion at a hair dressing salon near one of the shops before causing other cylinders used by the wood artisans to also explode.
The fire, according to reports, started around 10:00 p.m., Sunday evening.
Some of the victims told journalists that they have lost in excess of over 50,000 Ghana cedis due to the fire outbreak.
They are, however, calling on government to support them to get back into business.
Investigations are underway to confirm the cause of the fire outbreak.
