The flood carried away everything including vehicles

A GOIL fuel station near the Kwame Nkrumah interchange was burnt with people and vehicles in the vicinity. The cause of the fire was as a result of a leakage of the fuel tanks at the filling station due to the flood and the fuel had mixed up with the flood water.

According to the report by the five-member committee tasked to investigate the tragedy the fire was ignited by one Seth Kwesi Ofosu, who did not dispose of properly the butt of a cigarette he was smoking.
