Traders and pedestrians who trooped to the GCB Bank Liberty House branch in the Central Business District of Accra wanted to break into the building and steal money, the Ghana National Fire Service has disclosed.

The Service observed that because the traders and pedestrians wanted to loot, they got furious when its personnel called police to come and help them in their operations.

The fire gutted parts of the Bank’s branch at Kantamanto in Accra on Saturday, November 28.

The cause of the fire, which started on the first floor of the seven-storey building, is still unknown, according to the Fire Service.
