Obuasi: Fire kills one and half yr-old girl
Fire has gutted a single room apartment at Obuasi new estate killing a one and a half- year old girl and destroying items worth thousands of cedis.
The destroyed items include TV sets, sound systems, furniture, clothing and an unspecified amount of cash.
An eye witness who spoke to Adom News’ Isaac Normanyo said the fire started around 10 pm Wednesday night.
The cause of the fire has not yet been established.
“Around 10pm I woke up to attend to the toilet and on my way home I saw smoke coming out from that particular building and so I decided to approach the place only to hear the cry of a baby.
“I then shouted for help which drew some residents to the scene who helped to bring the situation under control. It is there that we found a baby who was completely burnt to ashes” she said.
She said security personnel have arrived at the scene to bring the situation under control.
