Details are scanty about the sad incident which had already taken waves in the capital of Western Region, Sekondi-Takoradi this evening. Sources say the mother who is yet to be identified was out of the home when the fire started.
The two year old boy who got consumed by the fire as a result of the mother’s “irresponsibility’, according to reports was locked up alone in the house.
Residents of Airport Ridge, a suburb of Kwesimintsim were alarmed by the smoke that was being emitted by the fire from the household.
The Police who were just a mile away from the incident rushed to the scene but it was too late for the poor boy. The mother was informed and I broken by the news.
Investigations had already started after the Fire Service had extinguished the fire. The National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) have also been to the scene to assess impact.
Last year a similar accident happened that got a two year old boy burnt in a container after a two fuel tankers caught fire. The report of that accident had since not been published to inform the public.
