A huge gas explosion recently went off in Atomic Junction, West Legon, Accra, Ghana, sending a giant fireball into the sky.
The explosion reportedly went off around 7:30 PM, at GOIL liquefied natural gas station.
The explosion then spread to another filling station belonging to Total across the street, a witness told Reuters.
Residents fled the area after the explosion.
It is unclear how many casualities the explosion has caused.
