[Photos] 2 rushed to hospital after gas tanker catches fire in Kumasi

A gas tanker driver and his conductor have been rushed to the hospital after their vehicle fell on its side and caught fire at Sokoban Ampayoo within the Kumasi Metropolis.

Firefighters struggled for hours before dousing the flame. They managed to prevent the fire from spreading to other areas.

The Public Relations officer of the Ghana National Fire Service in the Ashanti region, DO3 Peter Addai who spoke to Citi News on the incident said the incident happened around 10 am.

“At 10:35 am this morning, we had a distress call reporting a fire at Sokoban Ampayoo. So we quickly responded and when we got to the scene, a gas tanker was lying on its side and was on fire,” he said.

He said his outfit had to mobilize three more tenders to join the one on the ground before they were able to manage the situation.

No other casualties have been recorded apart from the two men who were in the truck.
