Ghanaian comic actor, Koo Fori, has spoken on the recent fire outbreak that razed down his house in the first week in September.
He delved into the origin of the fire and the items that were destroyed as a result.
Speaking in a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, Koo Fori said the incident happened on the night of Sunday, September 5, 2020.
He said he had some visitors and went to see them off in the evening. On coming back, Koo Fori said he went straight to his bedroom to charge his phone.
While in the bedroom, the actor said he switched on the television and saw that Ghana’s Most Beautiful was showing on TV3 and he decided to watch.
Suddenly, Koo Fori said his TV went off, and so he pulled the curtains in the bedroom to see if there was light outside the room.
The actor said upon checking the socket, he decided to move to the hall to continue watching his TV show.
Upon coming into the hall, Koo Fori said he saw that the hall was filled with smoke and he had difficulty breathing.
Just then, he saw fire emitting from the air condition, but he could not help the situation because the smoke was becoming unbearable and breathing nearly impossible.
Koo Fori said he decided to step out of the room and all he heard behind him was “boom”. Fire was all over the place.
The actor said he began screaming for help and calling on his next-door, neighbour who came around, followed by other people in the area.
Koo Fori said he lost everything in the hall and fortunately for him, the fire did not spread to catch his cars parked outside.
“I gave up because my car keys were inside. The fire kept spreading and all I cared about then was my cars because the house was already gone,” Koo Fori added.
