Firefighters battled a blaze that broke out at one of the properties housing Accra-based Zylofon TV— a subsidiary of Zylofon Media.

The incident occurred on Monday at about 10pm after workers detected a huge smoke billowing from one of the rooms in the building.

Two fire engines were at the scene to douse the flame, reported.

Owner of Zylofon Media and CEO of defunct Menzgold Nana Appiah Mensah, popularly known as NAM 1, is urging calm, adding that the situation is under control.

It still remains unclear what started the fire as officers begin investigations.

See full statement from Zylofon Media on the development:

A fire incident occurred at about 9 pm on Monday 25th November 2019 at the Zylofon Media Complex used for our television, radio and online operations.

Thankfully, the incident which affected one of our two buildings, occurred in the night after most of our staff members, clients and visitors had departed the premises.

We are extremely grateful to God that there were no human fatalities or casualties.

While one part of the complex was damaged by the fire, the swift response of the Ghana National Fire Service, some of our staff, friends and well-wishers, who all responded to the incident in diverse ways, contributed to the swift containment and extinguishing of the fire.

We commend the professionalism of the GNFS and the Ghana Police Service officials and thank them for the timely and invaluable service they rendered.

We are now working with the relevant authorities to ascertain the cause of the fire outbreak. Relevant experts are also working to ensure the structural integrity of the affected building.

We are also working assiduously to resume our full operations as soon as possible.

We will keep the public updated on any developments on this matter.

Once again we wish to express our deep appreciation to all for the encouragement and moral support during the incident.

Thank you

Management, Zylofon Media.
