Photos: Fire guts Asafo market again, over 200 shops affected


The Asafo Market in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi, went up in flame for the second time within 24 hours, ravaging properties running into thousands of cedis.

Over 200 shops have been burnt into ashes in the second inferno that hit the market on Easter Sunday.

This adds to three, the fire outbreaks that have been experienced in Kumasi in less than 72 hours.

Though the cause of the fires are yet to be established, victims suspect it could be arson.
