The report says the family went to bed without putting out the candle whose flames later extended to equipment in the house. Despite the intervention of neighbours and firefighters, Amié Benjamin, his wife and two children aged 10 and eight years could not be saved from the fire that engulfed the house.

Ntsama Ntsama Marlyse Sidonie, neighbor of the victims told reporters; “I was trying to sleep when I heard a motorcycle taxi driver asking my neighbours to serve him a litre and a half of fuel. A few moments later I heard “fire, fire.” That’s when I got up, the flame was already at my nearest neighbour’s  house”.
