Fire Kills Pastor’s Wife, Three Children And Mother-In-Law In Dansoman

A family of five including a two-month-old baby have been reported dead in a fire outbreak at Dansoman, a suburb of Accra, Sunday morning.

The deceased including a pastor’s wife, three children and mother-in-law were burnt to ashes when fire gutted their storey building.

Pastor Ato Kessie, the Dansoman District pastor of the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) church was not in the house at the time the incident happened.

An eyewitness who spoke to Adom TV’s Rita Abrefi said, the fire broke out around 5 AM in the six-bedroom storey building near the Wesley Grammar school in Dansoman.

According to him, the victims were trapped by the security burglar proof at the entrance of the room and could not run out of the house.

The eyewitness said efforts to mobilize some residents to help free the deceased were unsuccessful.

He believes by the time firefighters arrived at the scene, the damage was already done.

Director of Operations at the National Fire Service, Kwaku Manu Afful confirmed the incident to Adom News.

He said they received a distress call around 6:30 am and quickly rushed to the scene, but had to, as a result of the intensity of the fire, call for support to douse the fire.

The Deputy Fire Officer said the cause of the fire is still unknown and victims were already dead when they entered the room.

Meanwhile, the police were at the scene and have deposited the charred and badly disfigured bodies at the Police hospital morgue.
