YEN.com.gh has learnt that a blazing fire burnt down a 6-bedroom house which was rented by the Ghana Police Service to be used as quarters for some personnel in Buokrom a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
According to reports, the fire started on Friday at 11:30AM and only subsided at 12:15PM.
Reports suggest that the blazing fire destroyed items including, clothes, foot wears, uniforms, boots, electrical gadgets such as refrigerators, television sets, sound systems, home theatres, microwaves, laptops mattresses and beds, a set of room furniture, books, ceiling fans, school uniforms, wall clocks and other items.
However, more significant among the destroyed items was a cash of twenty thousand Ghana Cedis (GHS20,000.00) belonging to the wife of one Inspector Benjamin Ankrah Moore of Courts Unit/Ash.
According to a report by Ghanaians online news outlet, MyNewsGH.com, the Ghana National Fire Service from Manhyia District, who responded at the scene, were able to salvage GHS10,694.00 out of the alleged GHS20,000.00.
The wife of the inspector also complained that her £1000.00, which she had purportedly left in the room, has also been burnt down.
The Fire officers easily pointed out the tentative cause of fire as electrical fault.
