Three young siblings perished in a domestic fire outbreak in Tema Community Two, in the late afternoon of Thursday, when they were resting after returning from school.

The fire, which started at about 3:30 pm, claimed the lives of Bridget Delali Hammond, 10, Winnifred Hammond, 9, and Parisah Adewumi Hammond, 2 years of age.

The children were said to have returned from the closing sessions of the second term and were sleeping in a wooden kiosk in front of their house when the event occurred.

According to eyewitnesses, it took residents of the BBC neighbourhood a lot of time and effort to quench the fire but could not rescue the children.

When the Ghana News Agency (GNA) contacted the Community One District Command of the Ghana Police Service, it gathered that their charred bodies had been deposited at the Tema General Hospital morgue whilst investigations into the incident continued.
