Fire has gutted a two-storey apartment at Kasoa tollbooth on the Tuba road leaving one person injured.
The cause of the outbreak of the fire is still unknown. The sad incident occurred on Friday evening.
An eye witness speaking to Adom News said, it was a near-death experience as the fire peeled off part of the injured person’s body. It took fire service personnel, who rushed to the scene, over three hours to put out the fire with their two fire tenders.
Operations officer of the Weija Divisional Fire Station, ADO1 George Yeboah, encouraged every household to get fire extinguishers.
He said Friday’s fire could have been controlled before their arrival if there was a fire extinguisher.
