About 134 persons have been rendered homeless with their belongings destroyed following a bush fire that gutted mud houses at Ative-korfeyie in the Ketu North District of the Volta Region.
The fire started from a nearby bush and spread to their homes.
A sizable amount of harvested food crops including maize were also destroyed in the fire.
According to the Deputy District National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) Coordinator, Bright Alormatu, the fire razed about 34 thatch houses including 15 electric poles.
A swift intervention by fire service personnel from Akatsi and Dzodze prevented the fire from consuming the entire community.
