DOIII said they were informed that one person was trapped in the fire, which made the personnel to force their way into the burning room and brought out the charred body of the woman, which was later deposited at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital Morgue.

Some eyewitnesses said they heard a loud cry for help and rushed to the scene only to realise the place was on fire but all efforts to save the woman proved futile.

DOIII Abdul Wasiu Hudu, the Central Regional Public Relations Officer of the GNFS, expressed regret that most people failed to call the Fire Service immediately they discovered fire.

He said people preferred to deal with fires themselves and resorted to calling the Fire Service when things got of control.
