Fire service personnel risks life over gas leak

A tanker carrying Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) at kentinkrono in the Ashanti region around 4:30 pm leaked heavily causing fear in the area.

The gas tanker believed to be heading to the kentinkrono goil gas station in the Ashanti region from Accra experienced the leakage on the Ejisu to kumasi highway specifically kentinkrono amangoase area leaving commuters and drivers in panic.

The atmosphere could only be described as Chaotic as there was vehicular traffic causing most drivers to manage past the tanker without contact whiles other vehicles turned round to avoid any casualty.



The knust fire fighters however were up to the task as they managed to suppress the gas and finally putting a stop to the leakage: they quickly spayed volumes of Hydrogen on the gas stopping a possible explosion.
No casualties were recorded…
