Thick flames have swept through portions of the Ivex Minerals Building on the Farrar Avenue in Adabraka Accra.
The office complex once housed the old Kasapa office. The fire incident happened on Friday, September 24, 2021, at around 6 pm.
A large section of the first, second, third, and fourth floors of the building have been destroyed by the fire.
The exact cause of the inferno is not immediately known, but residents suspect an electrical fault.
Three fire tenders had been deployed to the scene to douse the flames at the time of filing this story.
“The fire started around at 5:45 pm. The fire officers tried their best. They arrived on time and did a very good job”, Nabil Musah, an eyewitness, told Citi News.
The fire, which started around 7:2am on Friday, September 24, 2021, affected the storeroom of the company, damaging materials and equipment used in the production of rubber packs.
According to one of the workers, one of the materials we use to manufacture rubber packs caught fire.
“So the fire extended to other parts of the building. We all panicked so we quickly rushed out of the building,” he said.
This inferno comes a few hours after a similar outbreak at the Ghana Rubber Product Limited around the STC transport yard earlier in the day.
The fire, which began around, affected the storeroom of the company, damaging materials, and equipment used in the production of rubber packs.
