According to ADO 1 Charles Naam-Were, Operations Officer at Budumburam Fire Station, the origin of the fire is presently unknown, necessitating the launch of an inquiry into the event.

ADO 1 Charles Naam-Were explained, “We received a call from the fire master control around 13:06 hours. Within 1 minute, we left the station and arrived here around 13:15 hours. Upon our arrival, the fire was well alight. Our priority was to salvage and prevent the other containers from being engulfed by the fire. Therefore, we tactically tackled the fire by containing it and preventing its spread to adjacent containers. Once we secured the perimeter, we commenced actively fighting the fire. However, as the situation escalated, we realized that the fire was spreading extensively, prompting us to call for backup.”

Shop owners, who saw the loss of their belongings due to the fire, were shocked by the tragedy.

Despite the intensity of the fire, efforts were made to safeguard the remaining containers from further damage.

In the meantime, some residents speculate that the fire may have been triggered by human error.
