WATCH...Drone Footage Of Fatal Gas Explosion Scene

A fatal gas explosion rocked the country's capital on Saturday evening, leaving in its trail, the death of seven people.

The fire was first noticed by attendants at a gas station when LPG that was being discharged at Atomic Junction, on the Haatso-Madina link road, started to leak.

The station attendants saw the leak and evacuated the area. The leaked gas had by then formed a cloud in the sky above the station.

According to reports, a khebab seller opposite the station then started a fire to sell his product (chinchiga).

Unfortunately, the fire shot up into the air and connected with the "gas cloud"; catching fire instantly.

The first explosion was said to be so severe that students of Presec, Legon had to be evacuated.

The sky lit up at about 7:30pm, and from a distance of about 30km away, the explosion could still be visible in the cloudy skies.

Two more explosions subsequently followed causing passers by, commuters and residents in the area to run helter-skelter.

Watch a drone footage of the gas explosion scene below, the morning after the fatal incident.
