The operations manger of Vienna City said that while the fire at the Accra club on Thursday night was "a blow” the business “will bounce back bigger and better”.
Speaking to Pulse Ghana the morning after a massive fire at the popular club at Circle, the operations manager of the club, Gabriel Nana Kwame Agyare said the business was very thankful there was no loss of life in the incident.
The fire was currently being investigated by police, and Agyare was unable to speculate on the cause, or say if it was suspicious.
“At the moment everything is in the hands of the police. We are waiting for them to get done with their investigations,” he said.
Agyare was at the premise last night and returned this morning.
He said the police had cordoned off the area and were not allowing anyone in while they investigated.
The fire was “a blow” but he wanted to assure customers “Vienna City will bounce back bigger and better than before. We thank god no life was lost, there is nothing more important than life.”
As the fire happened early in the evening, around 7.15pm, there was no one in the club when the fire started, and only a few people in the restaurant, he said.
He was unable to comment on how much the damages will cost the business.
The cause of the fire is not entirely known, but fire service personnel who arrived at the scene said some combustible materials within the premises of the Vienna City attributed to the quick spread of the fire.
The fire personnel managed to completely put out the fire an hour after they arrived.
When Pulse.com.gh reporter, David Mawuli visited the scene of the fire, workers were found trying to access the casino of the Vienna City to salvage what may be left of the disaster. Some workers were also packing their baggage to find refuge.
