An update by the Ghana Police Service has revealed that the Ghana National Fire Service crew has efficiently managed to douse the fire that caught the fuel tanker on the Accra-Kumasi Highway.
The Police says the GNFS after the exercise cleared the debris, and washed that section of the road for safe use by all motorists.
As a result, the Kyebi MTTD Accident Prevention Squad (APS) has opened the road for all motorists, the Police said in a statement.
“We therefore take this opportunity to thank the Ghana National Fire Service crew for their quick response, as well as all motorists for their patience,” the Police noted.
Meanwhile, the Police has urged all vehicle owners, particularly those who carry hazardous goods, to continuously service and maintain their vehicles, equip their vehicles with approved fire extinguishers which are in good working order, and avail their drivers to vehicular fire management training periodically.
A loaded fuel tanker has caught fire on the Accra-Kumasi highway (N6) at Nsutam near Paradise Rest Stop.
As a result, Kyebi MTTD APS traffic officers blocked the highway from the Osino direction and at Nsutam Custom Barrier.
