The GNFS has confirmed the death of two persons at Mampong-Worakese in the Ashanti Region.
The fire which was said to have started Friday dawn ravaged a five-bedroom house.
The charred bodies of the two victims – 90-year-old Madam Agyapomaa and Yaw Mensah, 11, – were later discovered moments after battling the huge blaze.
“The whole house got burnt. At the time fire personnel went to the scene the house was set alight… but we were able to extinguish it and at the end of the day two bodies were discovered and their bodies have been released to the police,” DO III Peter Addai said.
Residents in both towns are still in shock. Many thronged the scene to mourn with the bereaved family.
“We tried to save them but they got trapped,” a relative Afia Konadu told journalists amid tears. “We just have to leave everything to God.”
The GNFS said investigations have been launched into the incident.
