The Fire service found the fire extinguishers in Odo Rice and Mr. Biggs to be in faulty condition as well as electrical wirings and fire sensors.  

 “We will be going back to Mr. Biggs and Odo Rice today to find out whether they have complied with the directive we gave last Friday….when we go there and these things are not functioning or they have not repaired them, we will revoke their fire certificate.

This will also mean they have flouted the fire regulations Act as such, we will arrange for their conviction.” Ebenezer Simpson, Regional Fire Officer, says.

Meanwhile management of Grand View Hotel, located in Accra central, have a week to correct an obstruction to its entrance to allow accessibility in case of an emergency.

 Regional Fire Officer, Ebenezer Simpson tells Citi Business News the Fire Service will shut down the hotel if it also fails to meet the one week ultimatum. “We expect that their entrance will be cleared of any obstruction.
