Fire has gut a compound house in the Ashaiman-Lebanon community destroying properties and leaving two children in mild conditions.

According to reports, the incident occurred in the day when the tenant whose room got burnt was absent. “They (tenant) had gone to work. His children too had gone to school. So at 7:45 hours, neighbors to the tenant realized that smoke was coming out of the room.
