1 Min Read

A police officer with the Anti-Robbery unit in Kumasi, Owusu Asante Baafi, his wife and their 3-month old baby have been burnt to death in a domestic fire.

The incident occurred at a police barracks in Apromase around 11pm, Sunday.

The victims were said to have been trapped in their room and effort to rescue them proved futile due to the burglar proof windows and doors.

“I heard some noise and stepped out of my room. I then saw thick smoke bellowing from the room of the deceased and spreading to my room. I quickly woke up my two boys and rushed them downstairs.

Some of the men who came out tried their best to break in and rescue the officer and his family but they couldn’t because of the steel door and burglar proof window.

Within minutes, the fire spread to all the 5 apartments at the last floor” a next-door tenant, Philomena told 3news.com.

The cause of the fire has not been immediately established.

The Ghana National Fire Service has however commenced investigation on the incident.

Bodies of the deceased have been deposited at the Living Waters hospital morgue
