A video making rounds on social media captures the moment scores of people run for their lives as another tanker catches fire at Kaase, a suburb in Kumasi Metro.
In the video below, a tanker that is supposedly loaded with fuel is seen burning fiercely as onlookers watches on.
According to report on MyJoyOnline, the affected area is alleged to be a hideout for individuals engaged in illegal fuel siphoning activities.
Eyewitnesses say some individuals were using gallons to siphon fuel from the tanker at a hideout when it went into flames.
The fire spread to an abandoned factory in the area. About 50 make-shift structures occupied by squatters were burnt completely.
The tragic incident at Apiate in the Bogoso Municipal has now deterred people from going close to disaster and taking videos and photos.
