According to an eye witness, sparks from an electrical fault within the house may have have been the immediate cause of the inferno.
The fire was said to have started in the kitchen of the house.
“When I got there yesterday, and they showed us where the fire started from, there were no indications, suggesting that it was through a gas or cylinder leakage. The cylinders were not touched, so, I think that it was an electrical fault,” an eye witness narrated.
The bodies of the children, he said, have been conveyed to the Upper East Region Hospital.
