Residents of Ecomog, a slum around Kwame Nkrumah circle in Accra,
are appealing for government support to enable them restart their businesses destroyed by the fire.
Hundreds of them have reportedly been rendered homeless following blaze that flattened their homes late Saturday.
The cause of the blaze is unknown as personnel of the Ghana National Fire Service remained tight-lipped.
Residents say the fire started around 2:30pm shortly after some officials from the Electricity Company of Ghana came to work on a faulty electricity pole.
The residents started fighting the fire after it started before personnel from the Ghana National Fire Service arrived at the scene.
Joy News Elton John Brobbey reported Sunday that, some of the residents were counting their losses a day after the incident, while other called for assistance from government.
