Fire has reportedly destroyed nine rooms at Kyerease, killing one person in the process. Kyerease is a suburb of Kronum in the Ashanti region.
A 65-year old man who is bedridden could not escape the inferno, an eyewitness disclosed.
The fire which took the life of the 65-year old man is reported to have started in the evening of Monday, January 10, 2022.
An unconfirmed cause of the fire is believed to be an electrical fault, an occupant of the house claimed.
Speaking to Akoma FM’s Kwame Yeboah, Adwoa Agyapomaa said; “I heard some inhabitants shouting fire! fire! I realized it was coming from one of the rooms.”
The body of the deceased has been deposited at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital morgue.
