Four people from a single family are reported dead in a fire accident in Yaounde, political capital of Cameroon.

The tragic incident occurred at a market in Ngoumou in Mefou et Akono Division of the Centre Region.


The accident which is thought to have been caused by petrol claimed four lives and damaged five houses.
Eyewitnesses recount that the incident occurred when a petrol seller tried to light a candle at  aroun 10 p.m. local time on Monday.
The inflammable liquid reportedly caught fire and set the whole household ablaze, killing the sixty-year old petrol seller, his wife,   and children.

The neighborhood had been suffering from electricity blackout for days, Crtv reports.
This is the second fire accident recorded in Cameroon in one day. Earlier on Monday a school was set ablaze in the North West Region.
 No human lives were lost even though five classrooms were reduced to ashes.

Six persons lost their lives in a car accident in the Littoral Region on that same Monday meanwhile seven others perished in two other separate road accidents at the weekend.
