An undisclosed amount of money is feared burnt after one of Accra's most popular entertainment centres Vienna City, located at Circle, caught The fire around 7:00 pm, Thursday.

It is not clear yet what caused the fire but properties running into thousands of cedis are up in flames. Vienna City is just opposite the Goil filling station which was reduced to ashes on June 3, 2015, the night of flood and fire disaster which claimed some 150 lives.

The owner of the place according to myjoyonline, told fire officers who came to the scene that he he still had lots of money in the facility's casino and was hoping they could prevent the fire from heading in that direction.

Some workers were also seen trying to  have access to the Casino which is the heart of the Vienna City to salvage what may be left of the disaster.

Residents in the area, some of whom still remember the gory impact of the June 3 disaster are giving a helping hand to fire officials to ensure the fire does not degenerate.

But there is a Shell filling station inches away from the burning City with a tanker said to be offloading fuel, Latiff reports.  There are fears the fire may spread to that area.
