Fire has gutted the main administration block of the Mampong College of Technical Education.
This occurred in the early hours of Monday, April 19.
Eyewitnesses said some important documents have been destroyed.
This comes after fire ravaged over 40 shops at the Kumasi Central Market with property worth millions of Cedis destroyed by the inferno.
The section of the market where hand-made shoes and leather sellers pavilions are is said to have been heavily affected by Sunday nightâ€™s inferno.
Ashanti Regional Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Ghana National Fire Service, DOIII Acquah Desmond, told host Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin that â€œpreliminary investigation revealed 40 out of 48 shops within that particular section of the central market [have been affected].â€
He explained the main cause of the fire was a result of lightning during Sunday nightâ€™s downpour in Kumasi, triggering fluctuations in power and the consequent fire outbreak.
â€œAt about 10:00 pm on Sunday, we had a distress call, so our team rushed to the scene. Our major problem was access to the actual scene because of the haphazard siting of shops without proper roads and access routes.
â€œNonetheless, our team manoeuvred and managed the fire from spreading. So at about 11:30 pm, the fire was quenched.â€
