Two Children Burnt To Death In The Ashanti Region

Tragically,fire engulfed a room in Agona Afamanso, in the Sekyere East District of the Ashanti Region, resulting in the loss of two children’s lives.
The incident reportedly occurred at about 8:00pm on Monday.

The children, a 6-year-old girl and a 4-year-old boy, were sound asleep when the incident occurred and unfortunately, they became trapped in their room.
The Assemblyman, Martin Mensah, confirmed the incident on Adom FM midday news, Kasiebo is Tasty.

Mr Mensah disclosed that, their 40-year-old guardian who was with them had stepped out to get something when the incident happened.

The cause of the fire is yet to be established.

The Assemblyman mentioned that he suspects a candle was present in the room since there is no electricity in the house.
Therefore, it couldn’t have been an electrical fault. It’s so devastating that the boy, who is the woman’s last born, and the girl, who is her granddaughter, were involved in such a tragic incident.
The boy’s body was burnt beyond recognition, and it seems like he tried to escape but unfortunately got trapped.

The woman is currently devastated and hasn’t said a word since the incident. But for the swift intervention of bystanders, she might have jumped into the fire and died too,” he narrated.

Mr Mensah revealed that, the children may have been saved if firefighters were deployed to the scene.

“I called the Agona Fire Station immediately I heard the news but was told the fire tender is not working so the residents had to get water to douse the fire. Unfortunately, they couldn’t make it,” he said.
