Fire on Monday gutted a house at Effiakuma Jamboree near Takoradi, destroying personal effects.

According to Mr. Joseph Eshun, the duty officer at the Western Regional Fire Service, who led a team of firemen, the fire started at around 12.15 p.m.

He said the fire was brought under control at about 12:45 p.m. through the combined efforts of the team from the Regional Fire Service and the Takoradi Port Fire Service.

Mr. Eshun said there were no deaths and casualties and the fire was prevented from extending to the living room of the house.

The cause of the fire was not readily known, though some suspect illegal electrical connection.

Mr. Eshun said he learnt from the owner of the house, Mr. Kwame Frempong, that the house was last wired 45 years ago.
