The Ghana National Fire Service has cautioned the public on the use of fires, with the onset of the harmattan season.
The Service has recorded 243 fires since December 24, 2019, that’s within just ten days.
Speaking on the Pulse on Joy News, the Public Relations Officer of the Ghana National Fire Service Ellis Robinson Okoe urged the public to ensure grown weeds are clear around their houses.
Mr. Ellis Robinson Okoe further urged the public to be fire-alert in their domestic activities.
“We don’t need to keep flammable liquids in the house like petrol, turpentine and the rest and then a lot of people use gas in the house but we observe that people don’t maintain their regulators. The moment is getting spoilt they put a stone on it, it is very dangerous.”
