About 60 inmates of the New Life Orphanage in Nungua are in desperate need of a place to lay their heads after fire razed their three bedroom home in Accra.

The fire which occurred late Wednesday afternoon destroyed items worth over thousands of cedis.

Founder of the Orphanage Nii Afotey Botwe told Accra-based Joy fm, the fire started while the inmates were in school.

He said he saw smoke billowed from the boys room where one of the beds close to the window was on fire.

"I run quickly to check when I realised that the fire was coming out. There was a lot of smoke and the extinguisher cannot do anything because there was a lot of smoke".

Nii Afotey added that there was black-out in the neighborhood at the time of the incident.

Laptops, clothes, books, clothing, furniture were lost in the raging fire.

However, three Bibles were left unburnt.
