A huge explosion has rocked a gas station in Ghana's capital of Accra, claiming the lives of an unknown number of people, and triggering the evacuation of a large number of local residents, police and government officials say.
Ghana National Fire Service spokesman Billy Anaglate said investigations were underway and it was too early to determine the exact cause of the fire. Videos on social media showed giant balls of flames that set the night sky aglow. He cautioned that emergency responders had not been able to access a convenience store at the gas station and said it was unclear whether anyone was inside.
Ghana's deputy information minister Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah said the fire had been controlled and firefighters were now controlling the second explosion.
But he said people with "various degrees of injury" were being treated in hospital.
