An 89-year-old woman Auntie Abenaa Nkumaa has been burnt to death at Assin Asempaneye in the Assin North District of the central region after a fire engulfed a 3 bedroom compound house this dawn. Daughter of the deceased Esi Kweisaa in an interview said the deceased had an eye problem so she could not run out after the fire engulfed the house while she was deeply asleep.
An eyewitness said they tried their best to quench the fire but they couldn’t.
Assin Fosu Municipal Fire Station Officer DO3 Paul Tawiah in an interview on Rich FM confirmed the incident and said, they can’t rule out electrical fault but they are yet to conduct their primary investigation.
