A section of the Achimota forest in Accra is currently on fire.
According to eye witnesses, the inferno was spotted few minutes after midday; it is however not clear what caused the fire.
It is suspected that the fire which is consuming part of the Abelemkpe roundabout – Achimota school section of the forest might have been caused by someone in search of game in the forest.
Fire Service personnel are at the scene busily trying to douse the raging fire.
The country in the past 48 hours has recorded several fire outbreaks and it is feared that more incidents could occur during the current severe harmattan condition if precautionary measures are not put in place.
