The eye witness said the fire started when some of the petroleum substance poured on a woolen carpet near the cooking spot.

Two boys and a girl who are also children of the deceased have sustained various degrees of injury. They are on admission at the Tema General Hospital and are in critical condition according to reports.

Amidu said the residents tried to put out the fire but the woman didn’t give out information about his children and husband being inside the room. The rescuers only knew about them after they spotted them at the window in flames.

Personnel from the Ghana National Fire Service later arrived at the scene to quench the fire.
