Somewhere between 5.00 and 5.30pm this afternoon, staff of Amansan Television (ATV) noticed fire burning apparently from the direction of an air conditioning unit in their studio.
When alarm, was raised, everyone ran to safety and an urgent call was made to the Ghana Fire Service to come and help put out the fire.
Two fire tenders came soon followed by three more.
It has become apparent after about an hour and a half, that the Fire Service personnel have not been able to contain the fire at the studio.
Now the fire has spread to other offices on the same block as the ATV studio.
The ATV studio and four commercial offices of Groupe Nduom are on the same block.
It is important to note that the Regency Hotel and its restaurant, guest rooms and conference facilities are intact and were not touched by the fire.
We will keep the public informed with further developments as they occur.
