Fire Outbreak! Kantamanto market goes up in flames at midnight (VIDEO)

Popular Accra market, Kantanmanto Market, has been engulfed in fire.

News of the fire outbreak hit social media in the late hours of Tuesday. As seen on Twitter, tweeps shared scenes of the market up in flames with calls for fire service to come to the rescue of the market.



Kantamanto is a known hub for buying clothes, sneakers and anything you can think of when it comes to looking good at a very cheap price because the market is usually populated with second hand or store reject items or well-discounted newbies.


A few weeks ago, part of the GCB Bank that shares a wall with the market located at the centre of the Accra Central business area, also went up in flames.


At the time of this publication, 12:40 am, the cause of the fire and damage hasn’t been known yet. It’s neither been clear yet if the fire service has responded to the emergency to put the disaster under control.

Some Twitter users have already been sympathizing with the traders in Kantamanto.
