Fire has gutted two slums at Suame Magazine in Kumasi in the Ashanti region leaving 200 people, mostly women and children homeless.

There was no loss of live but properties including cash running into thousands of cedis were also lost in a separate blaze at Kotoko and Suame Magazine Zone 1 settlements also in Kumasi.

The cause of the fire is yet to be established but residents say this is the fifth of such incidents in the area within the last two weeks.
