Edward Oduro Nsiah said he received a distress call around to 12 am Sunday about the fire and he immediately called fire service for intervention.

“The fire started around 11:30 pm but I received a call around 12 am. I immediately reached out to the fire service but before they got to the scene, the family of four had already been burnt beyond recognition. The firefighters however managed to douse the flame saving four other tenants in the compound house”.

The bodies have been deposited at St Martin’s hospital at Agroyesum. Even though the exact cause of the fire is yet to be ascertain, preliminary investigation points to an electrical fault.
