Activities at the Jean Nelson AKA hall of the University of Ghana have come to a halt after a room caught fire at about 8:30pm Tuesday evening.
According to reports, the affected room is 3024.
Although the cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained, UniversNews understands that there were occupants in the room when the fire started.
According to an eye witness, “there were people in the room and the current got overloaded and when that happens the circuit automatically goes off…so they tried to turn the power on again and it sparked fire from one of the sockets”
Power supply to the hall has been cut to stop the fire from spreading to other rooms of the hall.
Meanwhile, UniversNews understands that the fire has been brought under control with the intervention of some students who fought it with sachet water from the floor’s kitchen.
Again, fire fighters have arrived at the scene.
Items affected include laptops, fridges and window nets.
However, no casualties have been recorded.
