A gas filling station near the Trade Fair Center in Accra has exploded injuring many with suspected number of people dead.

It is unclear what may have caused the explosion but eyewitnesses say a number of people who were at the filling station during the time of the explosion may have been caught in the fire.

The fire service have arrived at the scene to bring the huge flames under control but reports from the scene indicate that after the explosion thick black smoke was billowing into the sky.

The flames affect the power lines in the area forcing the lights to go off. The fire also spread to parts of the Trade Fair building. Some persons who were near the fire area run helter-skelter for dear life with many injuring themselves during the process.

The fire service managed to put the fire under control and investigations are about to commence.
