A 10-bedroom rented apartment housing some police officers at Dagomba-Line in Kumasi  has been razed down by fire.

The last floor of the 3-storey building was burnt completely, rendering occupants, mainly police officers and their families homeless.

Though the cause of the fire is not yet known, some occupants suspect power fluctuation may have triggered the fire.

The immediate response of personnel of the Fire Service and efforts of residents prevented the fire from spreading to other parts of the building.

A victim, who gave her name only as  Cynthia told Nhyira News that some victims lost everything to the fire.

The fire occurred at a time when majority of the police officers had left for work.

A few who were at home looked dejected and stranded as they began to count their loss.

Meanwhile, the fire provided a field day for thieves and intruders who looted other floors that were not affected by the fire.

Sources say laptops, undisclosed amounts of money and other valuables were stolen by  the unscrupulous persons who pretended to help douse the fire.

Personnel from the Fire Service at the scene say investigations have commenced into the incident.
