Fire at home burns 7 people alive in Ghana
2-year-old child among 7 dead, Ghanaian official says

ACCRA, Ghana (AA) - Seven people, including a two-year-old child were burnt alive when a fire swept through a house in Ghana’s Kumasi city early Friday morning, a local official told Anadolu Agency.

Mampong District Fire Officer Victor Avevor said it was too early to determine the cause of fire.

Eyewitnesses said firefighters had difficulty in accessing the four bedroom house in the Kumasi suburb of Asante Mampong.

“The doors of the house were locked and the windows had burglar proof [iron bars] so the people could not go inside to rescue the victims,” Samuel Brobbey, a local reporter from the area, said.

The latest incident coincided with the first anniversary of a fire and flood disaster that killed more than 100 people in the Ghanaian capital, Accra.

The government is holding a commemorative service near the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra, the site of last year’s fuel station explosion.
