The Kejetia market has historically experienced fire outbreaks. There have been multiple epidemics at the market that have destroyed shops, stalls, and their goods. One outbreak was on September 19, 2001[9], when the former Kejetia market saw over 150 stores destroyed by a raging shower of fire. It was difficult to determine how much the destroyed things cost.

A section that makes up Kejetia Market, an among Kumasi’s iconic buildings, went up in flames by fire this past Wednesday, March 15, 2023, destroying items valued at a billion Ghana cedis. A store on the market’s second floor caught fire about 4 p.m., moving to the third. Many of the merchants sobbed uncontrollably as thick, black smoke billowed from the charred stores on the market into the late afternoon sky.
