A ravaging fire has rendered 60-year-old lady and her family homeless and emptiness after all seven rooms with belongings burnt down to ashes at Aworano in the Techiman North District of Bono East Region.

Narrating the incident to ABC News, Elizabeth Gyamia, owner of the property said nothing was retrieved in all the seven rooms, owing to the intensity of the blazing fire, coupled with the late arrival of fire service personnel.

“I was awakened by my grandson who first noticed smoke in the house at about 9:30pm Wednesday, and we all came out to realize there was fire outbreak but could do virtually nothing to control it and all our rooms and belongings, including church property were consumed by the fire,” she recounted to ABC News Correspondent Issah Nabila Salifu.

According to her, they placed a call to fire service, but they arrived very late with insufficient water, so another tank full of water was brought in but it was too late as all items had been burnt already.

She said the effect of the fire was so severe that properties lost is unquantifiable, taking into account all rooms with occupants and countless valuables.


However no casualty was recorded as all present came out before advancement of the fire which is suspected to be caused by electrical fault.

“Three of the seven rooms had people in them but everybody came out unhurt – in my room alone, items destroyed could amount to over GHC15,000,” she said.

The landlady, popular known in the community as Assembly Woman, therefore made a passionate appeal to government, organizations and well-meaning Ghanaians to come to her aid as she and her entire household have been stripped of every personal belonging.

“As we speak, I don’t have anything in possession from clothing to utensils. Bed, luggage, everything is burnt so I am by this medium appealing to all and sundry to assist me and my grandchildren with anything little,” Elizabeth Gyamia begged as tears flows.
