Fire gutted the official residence of Ghana's ex-President Jerry John Rawlings on Sunday.
Rawlings who ruled Ghana from 1981 to 2001, was on a trip outside the capital at the time of the fire. The former first lady and her daughter escaped the mostly wooden colonial-style bungalow unhurt.
"Not a single pin was salvaged," Kofi Adams, an aide to the former president told reporters.
The Ghana National Fire Service said it took them at least three hours to bring the fire under control and the cause was under investigation.
