“Nothing was retrieved from the house but to me, if there’s life, there’s hope because my old Lady (Mother) was rescued from her room and she is worth more than any property.
Mr Sulemana, who said this in an interview with Myjoyonline said he received a call from home that, his house had been burnt into ashes..
He, however, said the additional pumps from the fire station made it possible for them to prevent the fire from spreading to nearby houses and properties.
He said he suspects an electrical fault as the immediate cause but added that “the whole thing is still under investigation because the fire started from one room and spread to the rest.”
An eyewitness, Sulemana Sheriff, who was in his room when the fire started, spoke to Myjoyonline.
He said his little boy who was playing outside the house first spotted smoke coming out from the top of the roof of his mother’s room and drew their attention.
“So, I rushed outside and first removed the fuse from the meter but the moment we picked out our old lady (mother) to safety, the fire quickly started spreading to every part of the house, Sulemana Sheriff indicated.
