Fire has gutted the Vienna City nightclub and game center at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra.

It is unclear what sparked the fire which started Thursday evening. Newsmen at the scene reported that “the entire structure is up in flames”. "Occupants of the structure, however, were all able to vacate the building" during the melee, Alhassan reported.

"The worry of the owner [of the night club] is the cash in the casino. He was impressing upon the firemen to save the casino and his money," he narrated.

He said so far, he can count about four fire tenders at the scene, with fire personnel busily fighting the blaze.

An eyewitness who gave his name as Ali said the fire started from a faulty air conditioner which exploded. “The fire people had problems entering with their cars hence this level of damage… I don’t think there is anything that can be salvaged except the machines at the Casino, which they are trying to protect.”

Vienna City is directly opposite the Goil filling station which was burnt down in the June 3, 2015 disaster, which claimed over 150 lives.

Vienna City Ltd is an entertainment and hospitality company whose business includes hotels, bars, casinos, restaurants and night clubs.
