The six-year-old girl reportedly left her friends playing outside and got into the deserted hut with a box of matches. She started playing with matches and lit the dry grass which was on the ground causing the whole kitchen to catch fire.

Due to the raging flames, the minor got  trapped in the hut and failed to escape.

Her friends tried to shout for help when they saw the fire engulfing the hut, but it was all in vain as no one came to her rescue.

Panicking, two of the girl’s friends ran back home to look for help and they found that her guardian was back. They then returned to save her but it was too late as she was already dead.
