There was a fire scare this morning at the Ghana Commercial Bank (GCB) Towers at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra.

The incident sent a number of people running for safety.

Bank officials explained that spilling water on the 5th floor landed on other floors and seaped into some electrical wires and gave a few sparks thereby raising concerns for safety.

Mr Kojo Addae-Mensah, who is the Chief Operating Officer at the GCB told newsmen at the scene that the situation was under control.

He explained the whole building was evacuated as they alerted the Fire Service and the police.

The Fire Service has since inspected the whole building and were satisfied that the bank could resume work, Mr Mensah said.

Janitors had been called in to mop up the water and that so far they were not aware of any equipment damage.

A number of fire personnel with ternders as well as police personnel dispatched to maintain law and order were at the scene when Graphic Online visited the premises.
