Scores of people are currently stranded after a bush fire destroyed over 20 houses and millions of properties at the Banta Mokeleh Section, Temidale Chiefdom in the Moyamba District, southern Sierra Leone.
According to a resident, Burba Yimbo, the accident happened when fire escaped from a bush which was burning to houses in the village.
He said the displaced people were in need of humanitarian support as they have lost their entire earthly possessions.
He revealed that a similar incident had occurred in Chokolloh, a neighbouring village to Bomatoke, where more than 30 houses were gutted by fire.
