The Electricity Company of Ghana's Bulk Supply station at Kumasi in the Ashanti region exploded Thursday evening, leaving parts of the city with no electricity.

The explosion, according to reports, happened at about 5pm.

Public Relations Officer of ECG in the area, Erastus Baidoo, confirmed the explosion to Luv FM's Erastus Asare Donkor, adding, the cause of the incident was yet to be known.

According to him, the earth reactor, cables and other key materials, which supplied electricity to the area had all been completely burnt.
