A fire outbreak has gutted 10 mechanic shops and a car at Ahodwo, behind Cristal Rose Hotel in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi.

The fire, which also destroyed a carpentry shop, started around 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, 27 March 2019.

Some residents and mechanics tried to put out the inferno to prevent further damage before personnel from the Ghana National Fire Service arrived to put it under control.

An eyewitness told Kumasi FM's Elisha Adarkwah that the fire started from one of the electric welding shops and spread to other shops.

The cause of the fire is not yet known but the fire service has commenced investigations.

The victims have pleaded with the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) to come to their aid.
