Fire has destroyed a six bedroom house at Sehwi Akaasu, a suburb of Bekwai in the Bibiani Anhweaso Bekwai municipality of the Western North region.
Occupants, including children were unhurt after the incident.
Esi Mmrah, one of the affected residents says the fire has burnt an undisclosed amount of money from her cooperative organisation.
She noted the fire has destroyed her materials, mattresses, and other electrical appliances, indicating that the inferno was able to cause huge damage because the residents in the apartment tried to control it themselves but to no avail.
Nana Yaw Boadi II, the Nfatowohene of Sehwi Akaasu who doubles as Ankobeahene of Sehwi Bekwai Traditional council told the media the late arrival of the Ghana National Fire Service was a blow to them.
He stressed that he got to the scene at exactly 1:15 am and by then the father had rescued his eight children from the fire unhurt. They placed a call to the Sehwi Wiawso regional fire service but their arrival couldn’t save anything in the house.
However, he appealed to the Bibiani Anhweaso Bekwai Municipal Chief Executive to come to the aid of the affected residents according to Onua TV’s Emmanuel Sowah.
