The Eastern Regional Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Fire Service, ADO1 Samuel Mantey confirmed this to Adom News Wednesday.

He indicated that, revealed that the tanker was travelling from Tema to Burkina Faso.

Three fire engines were deployed to fight the fire and in the course of extinguishing the fire, there was an explosion which injured four firemen so they were rushed to a nearby clinic for treatment,” he noted.

According to Samuel Mantey, what the firemen were doing after the fire was to apply “foam concentrate to prevent additional fires from occurring.”

He explained that with fuel, it “vaporises and when it comes into contact with the ambient oxygen, it can easily catch flames again so we are trying to control that aspect.”
