Fire gutted the residence of Seidu
Hamidu Bomison, a retired Senior Civil Servant at the Dobile Residential area at Wa last Friday and destroyed properties estimated at about ˘100m The fire destroyed the kitchen, garage and a Mercedes Benz saloon car.

Speaking to the Ghana News Agency at Wa on Sunday, Mr Bomison said the fire started around midnight when he was asleep.

He said he woke up and shouted for help that drew the attention of neighbours who managed to control it before personnel of Ghana National Fire Service arrived.

Mr Bomison said he suspected a foul play because electricity was off in
the area when the incident occurred and could therefore not be attributed
to an electrical fault.

He said there was an opening in the fence wall at the back of the house and a lid left behind smelt petrol.

An official of the Ghana National Fire Service said they were informed of the fire around 1.00 am on Saturday and they rushed to the scene to meet some neighbours who were struggling to put out the fire.

He said the fire was put off within some few minutes but could not determine the cause of the fire outbreak immediately, adding that they would investigate the cause.
