Fire on Monday morning destroyed portions of the Grace Chapel of the Calvary Charismatic Center in the Ashanti Regional capital Kumasi.
The affected area is a wooden structure known as the Northern branch of the Grace Chapel of CCC.
Citi News’ Hafiz Tijani said but for the prompt response of firemen, the incident would have been worse as they worked tirelessly to put out the fire in a three-hour-long battle.
A worker at the church who witnessed the incident said he tried to douse the fire with water but was unsuccessful.
“I had finished working so I decided to take a nap. When I rested for a while, I woke up and realised the building was on fire. I decided to quench it with several buckets of water but to no avail”.
He said a bystander immediately called in the fire service when they noticed the fire was proving difficult to control by themselves.
The value of the property destroyed is yet to be determined.
The past three days have witnessed various fire incidents within the Kumasi metropolis.
The Kumasi Central market was up in flames on Friday night, while some parts of the Asafo Market caught fire the next day leading to the destruction of several properties.
The latest incident was yet another fire outbreak on Sunday night at another part of the Asafo market that was not affected by the previous day’s fire.
The Mayor of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), Osei Assibey-Antwi has hinted of an impending regional security meeting to look into recurrent fire outbreaks which some suspect could be the work of arsonists.
