The heartbreaking incident left the deceased's mother, Matilda Asare, in uncontrollable tears.


Girl, 6, has been burnt to death at Sowutuom Agenda, near Bola Junction in Accra, after a fire gutted the parent's abode on Thursday.

The heartbreaking incident left the deceased's mother, Matilda Asare, in uncontrollable tears.
The girl, whose name was given as  Lordina Hope Agbalu, was fast asleep on the porch of their apartment without the knowledge of the mother when the fire started.
The Daily Guide newspaper, which first reported the story, said the apartment was part of a chain of wooden structures that were gutted by the fierce fire that broke out about 8 pm.
Matilda, a nursing mother, said she was unaware her daughter was fast asleep on the porch when the fire started.
She told the newspaper that that that evening she saw Lordina following one of her elder sisters out of the house.
She said she was asleep with her five-month-old child when she heard shouts for help coming from the adjourning kiosks followed by a thick smoke.
She said she immediately picked up her baby and left the room.
“Later, I asked of the whereabouts of my child only to be told that she returned later to sleep.”
The body of the 6-year-old girl was discovered lying on the porch after the fire had been doused.

Police from the Sowutuom District Police Command and the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) were at the scene to assess the situation and to pick up the body.

Police reports have indicated that about 15 wooden structures occupied by squatters and five container shops got burnt.
The body of Lordina was later sent to the Police Hospital for preservation while investigations continue.
The cause of the fire is yet to be established by the firefighters who visited the scene.
