Owners of two shops in Timber Market at Aflao in the Ketu South Municipality are counting their losses after fire engulfed the wares in the shops.

The incident which occurred in the early hours of today [Thursday] razed the two shops to ground.

Residents who witness the destruction were thrown into shock and empathy as they could not tell the cause of the fire.

A timely response from Personnel from the Ghana Fire Service to douse the fire saved the third shop from being completely razed in the inferno.

According to an Eyewitness ” Everything got burnt in the shop where all tailoring materials, such as zip, lining, jewelry, clothes and polyester and some cotton clothing and other things that tailors use for designing, and everything got burnt in it.

He added ‘there were three (3) shops in a row, the third shop is for a mobile money vendor and they sell hair there as well… Just few of the hairs got burnt before the fire service came”

Attempts by Voltaonline to speak with one of the affected owners, Mad Evelyn Avorkah were not successful as she struggled to come to terms with the incidence.

The Municipal Fire Commander, Mr Stanley Nusetor said his outfit has begun investigation into the cause of the fire.
