A fire outbreak, last night, has razed the building housing the offices of ghanabusinessnews.com, an online media platform, on the Accra High Street, in Accra.
It is estimated that properties destroyed by the fire, at the Cathedral Clinic and Laboratory which also hosts other offices including ghanabusinessnews.com, could run into thousands of Ghana cedis.
According to the Managing Editor of ghanabusinessnews.com and Executive Director of NewsBridge Africa, Emmanuel Dogbevi, who was called to the scene of the incident, his office had burnt completely before the fire was put out.
He said all his documents and other valuables including office equipment – laptops, printers, voice recorders, books among others – were destroyed and none could be recovered.
Although personnel of the Ghana National Fire Service who responded to the situation was yet to give the cause of the fire outbreak some eyewitnesses said an electrical problem could have led to the fire.
