By Matthew Mpoke Bigg and Kwasi Kpodo ACCRA (Reuters) - An explosion at a petrol station in Ghana's capital Accra killed about 90 people, many of whom had sought shelter there from torrential rain, on Wednesday night, the fire brigade said. The blast was caused by a fire that erupted at a nearby truck terminal then spread to the petrol station and other buildings, fire brigade spokesman Prince Billy Anaglate said. It ripped through the filling station, operated by GOIL , shattering windows and walls and reducing the station to rubble.
