The blasts happened at Atomic Junction, near the Legon suburb in north-west Accra, Ghana National Fire Service spokesman Billy Anaglatey said. To make the matter worse, ECG switched off power.

"This is a time for concrete action", Dodoo was quoted as saying by Citi FM radio after Saturday's incident. The blast was caused by an open fire used to grill meat near the gas station.

Dr Bawumia, who visited some hospitals that received the casualties including the Legon, 37 Military, Ridge and the Police hospitals, extended condolences to the bereaved families, and wished those who had been injured speedy recovery.

People were seen running to the safer place after the explosion happened.

Netflix raises prices on standard and premium plans
If you're one of the many millions of people in the United States who subscribe to Netflix , you might want to pay attention. If Netflix ups its price by £1 every 6-12 months then it might start seeing something of a backlash.

Ghana, a relatively new oil and gas producer, has suffered several recent accidents including an explosion in 2015 that killed around 100 people. "Had it not been that we had all it took in terms of training and expertise, I think this fire would have turned into a disaster and not the mere destruction of the facilities that occurred".

A petition asking lawmakers to "set up rules and regulations for safer filling stations away from businesses, schools and residential areas" has been signed by more than 1,000 people within hours.

Dominic Osei, a local businessman, said there were too many natural gas filling stations near petrol stations. About half of them had already been treated and discharged, it said.

A small unit on a tower building at Ghana's parliament also caught fire in July, although the blaze did not cause major damage.
