Fire has razed down the house of the Queen mother of Dwafo in the Atwima Nwabiagya Municipality of the Asanti Region, Nana Ama Takyiwaa.
The fire which started at about 2:00am on Tuesday morning destroyed several properties worth thousands of Ghana cedis with no casualties recorded.
Although personnel from the fire service responded to a distress call, by the time they reached the premises of the Queen Mother, they could do little to save the situation.
Here is the Queen Mother of Dwafo in the Atwima Nwabiagya Municipality of the Asanti Region, Nana Ama Takyiwaa narrating her ordeal.
UniversNews spoke to Nana Ama Takyiwaa and she shared her ordeal with us.
“I woke up at about 2 oclock am and I walked to the kitchen because I sensed that something was burning. I went to one of the rooms and I sensed it more. I then went to my brother’s room to alert him of the situation. We together went to one of the rooms and there was fire.
We quickly alerted everyone to get out of the house and we begun calling for help. The fire service came but everything was lost as at the time they came, we had lost everything. However, we recorded no casualties.”
Speaking to an officer of the Ghana National Fire Service at the scene, he entreated the public to be precise in directing them to the place of incident.
“We will advise the public to immediately contact the fire service anytime there are cases of fire. They should also do well in giving us accurate location so we would not suffer in finding the exact location of incident.”
