Korle-Bu Barracks Fire: One-Week-Old Baby, Three Others Injured
After a fire destroyed portions of the Korle-Bu police barracks Wednesday evening, a one-week-old newborn and three others were critically injured.
The four were fast asleep when the structure containing them caught fire around 11 p.m., according to eyewitnesses.
Residents stood helpless as the fire became worse before firefighters arrived to save them.
More damage would have been caused if the Ghana National Fire Service had not intervened quickly, according to an eyewitness who is a police officer and a resident of the affected building.
