Three people have died in a fuel tanker explosion at Onyina Nofo in the Ahafo Ano South West District of the Ashanti Region.

The disaster occurred on Monday, May 24 when the speeding tanker collided with a passenger vehicle in the relatively small town.

Eye witnesses say the diesel carrier caught fire instantly and overturned.

The fire swept through the community of about 400 to 500 inhabitants, destroying most of the houses they live in.

As a result, many of them have been rendered homeless.

Personnel from the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) as well as the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) were deployed to the scene to control the fire.

A two-year old boy is said to have been burnt to death while a number of children in the community are reported missing.
