A 32 year old pregnant woman and her seven year old son have been burnt to death after fire gutted their home Tuesday evening at Ekye Amanfrom in the Afram Plains South District of Eastern Region.
Another son of the deceased who was also burnt is in a critical condition at the Atibie Government Hospital where he’s receiving treatment.
It is not immediately known what caused the fire outbreak though it’s been established that the husband of the deceased sells fuel and may have kept some quantity at home.
A resident told Agoo Fm’s Ebenezer Kojo Nyavor in a telephone interview that they heard a loud voice calling for help only for them to get to the location to see the house on fire. It took the intervention of residents to dowse the fire.
Police in the area were later at the scene to transport the charred bodies of the deceased to the morgue for further investigations to be conducted.
