Fire has razed some parts of Grand Eco Cabanas Hotel in Pepie near Abono in the Bosomtwe District of the Ashanti Region.

Two people were injured in the blaze.

The fire started around 9 pm on Saturday, 8 January 2022 from one of the rooms and spread to others.

Rapid intervention by firefighters, however, put the flame under control.

According to the firefighters, 5 out of 18 rooms including a conference hall, restaurant, director’s office, mini theatre, and laundry room were razed.

The Regional Public Relations Officer of the Ghana National Fire Service, DOIII Peter Addai, told Class91.3FM’s Ashanti regional correspondent Elisha Adarkwah that two people got injured.

He said they were rushed to a hospital but were treated and discharged.

The cause of the fire, Mr Addai said, is not immediately known but investigations have begun.

“People should still take precaution when using fire for any activity”, he advised, adding: “In fact, they should install early warning detective systems at their premises to warn them in case there is any fire”.

“They should also have first aid fire appliances in place; first aid fire appliances like extinguishers so that they can use it to tackle any fire within their premises,” Mr Addai stated.
