Fadipe said that the incident, which happened at about 12:03 a.m., was caused by a power surge.
“When we got to the scene, we were able to break into the apartment but unfortunately, we met the couple dead behind the door. They were trying to escape when the fire broke out.


“Although we appreciate the security measures put in place by people in their homes or business centres, they should, however, be mindful of their safety,” he said.


Fadipe said that policemen from the Abattoir Police Division later came, removed the corpses and deposited them at an undisclosed mortuary.
