The fire is believed to have started around midnight, according to Ohwim Assemblyman Hon. Erastus Ebo Boison.

He stated that the cause of the fire is unknown, but he personally suspects arson.

According to him, one of the deceased children, aged 14, who managed to escape the fire, told him that all she saw was fire but was able to step out because she was sleeping in a different room.

The late’s husband, who is said to be a bank manager of a rural bank in Ashanti, was not present at the time.
