A fire has gutted tens of make-shift residential structures, amid unconfirmed reports of missing children, at Aboabo Dabgomba Line in Kumasi, the Ashanti Region capital.
The slum is home to thousands of porters popularly known as ‘kayayei’ and scrap dealers.
Luv News Editor, Saeed Ali Yaqub reported that personnel from the National Fire Service have been battling the blaze which covers a vast area which is difficult to navigate due to very undulating terrain in total darkness following a blackout.
It is unclear what triggered the Friday fire but eye-witnesses say it started late afternoon when most of the occupants were still at work at the markets.
This is a developing story, a further update will be added when provided by our correspondent.
