Fire has gutted a section of the Suame Magazine industrialized area in the Ashanti Region destroying property worth several thousands of Ghana cedis.

According to eyewitnesses, the fire started at about 5  Thursday morning when few persons were around to undertake their usual business.

Fire service personnel arrived promptly at the scene but had a tough time battling the fire as they had to return to their station to have fire tenders replenished before they could return to put out the inferno.

Some traders who expressed their frustration at the loss of their wares called on government to support them.

Suame Magazine is an industrialized area comprising many workshops for metal engineering and vehicle repairs in Ghana, employing an estimated 200,000 workers. This is the second time this year fire has gutted the area.

Circumstances surrounding the fire incident are yet to be known.
