A huge gas explosion at the Kumasi Shoe Factory in
Atonso-Agogo in the Ashanti Region Friday morning has left three
persons injured and two cars burnt.
The incident happened around 11am when a gas tanker said to
have been offloading fuel into the company’s cylinder
caught fire resulting in many workers fleeing for their lives.
The victims who sustained injuries during the stampede
have been rushed to the hospital for treatment.
Firefighters who responded immediately to
a distress call had a tough time battling the flames.
