The Ashanti Regional Public Relations Officer of the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) has warned of near consequences if authorities do not expedite action to demolish the sprawling slum along the Asafo Railway Line.

Speaking on Omanbapa Morning Show on Silver FM, Divisional Officer Grade 3 (DO3) ACKAH DESMOND said, the Metropolis human activities in the area is a potential fire outbreaks at any point in time.

He expressed concern in the growing activities in the area creating a hub for criminals and serving as a den for drug peddlers, whose illegal activities had made the area susceptible to fire - Illegal electricity connections, naked flames and other unsupervised activities relating to fire had also compounded the problem.

DO3 ACKAH told Host of the Show, NANA AMPRATWUM that, "it is time authorities must up their game to unroot the problem. It is a recipe for chaos",

"KMA should up their game", the Fighter added.

The advice comes in the wake of Sunday’s (May 02) fire outbreak which swept through about 30 wooden structures at the slum, leaving one person dead.

The body of the deceased, identified as Nana Yaw and said to be in his early 20’s, had since been deposited at the morgue for autopsy. The raging fire has left in its wake the wanton destruction of property worth thousands of Ghana Cedis.

When newsmen visited the scene of the incident on Monday, some of the affected residents were still searching through what had been left of the damage caused by the inferno.

“It took firefighters several hours to overcome the fire,” DO III Ackah Desmond disclosed, stressing that they were forced to call for additional tenders and security reinforcement due to the intensity of the fire as well as the recalcitrant nature of the residents.

“We had to bulldoze our way through many illegally-sited structures in order to reach the affected zones,” he said.
