KNUST Assures Fire Would Not Affect Accommodation

Authorities at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology say yesterday’s fire outbreak at one of the halls of residence will have no negative impact on students accommodation.

Fire gutted the 6th Floor of Block ‘B’, of the Unity Hall destroying 10 rooms as fresh and continuing students are set to report for a new academic year in just three weeks time.

At least forty students will temporarily be denied accommodation in the 2000 capacity hall, if renovation work delays.

However, Deputy Registrar at the University Relations Office, Vincent Ankamah Lomotey, says work will start as soon as fire officials complete investigation.

Fire personnel are yet to establish the cause of Wednesday’s blaze, but there speculation an electrical gadget belonging to some farmers occupying the hall blew up.

Mr. Ankamah Lomotey tells Luv News damage caused to the facility will be fixed before students report.

‘The extent of damage is not too big for which reason we expect the Maintenance department to be able to fix within a maximum of two weeks. It will not affect students’ accommodation in anyway because the rooms that were affected are few.’
