A family in Bibiani in the Western North Region are currently in mourning after they lost all three kids in a fire.
The mother of the kids ran out of her building when the fire started to get help, but by the time she returned the kids were already dead.
Starrfm reports that the incident occurred at Kalifonia, a suburb of Bibiani in the Anhwiaso Bekwai Municipality of the Western North Region.
A fire service officer who spoke to the station said the woman, Madam Monica, was in the room with the kids when the fire started.
She decided to go out and get some help in rescuing the kids instead of attempting it herself.
By the time she got the help she needed the kids were dead.
“According to our investigation, she saw the fire but decided to go out to call other neighbours to come and help her. At the time her husband was not there in the room so she was sleeping with these three children on the bed. But she went out to wake up her sister then they started calling her husband to come and assist them to put out the fire. By the time the Husband came, the fire had engulfed the whole place so the husband collapsed upon entry and they pulled him out that was the point we came in and put out the fire,” the officer said.
“All three children died. She could have done possibly better by bringing out the Children because the children were less than four years, one was 11 months, one was two years and one was getting to four years,”
The corpses of the children have been deposited at the Bibiani government hospital morgue.
