Food items belonging to the School Feeding Programme at Suame in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, have been destroyed after fire tore through the storehouse.
The Tuesday fire also ravaged seven shops and two vehicles owned by some artisans near a mechanic enclave in the area, Luv FM’s Erastus Asare Donkor reported.
The items worth hundreds of cedis belonged to the Nuru Islamic Basic School that is under the programme, the reporter said.
The cause of the fire has not been established, but there are claims a food seller nearby is to blame for the incident.
But speaking to Erastus, the accused person said she was not responsible for what happened, blaming a faulty electrical cable for the fire.
Meanwhile, the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) has instituted an investigation into the incident to uncover the cause of the fire.
