Fire destroys 4 dorms at Ainabkoi school in Uasin Gichu

The year is not even a month in and we have already had 2 at two different schools. Yesterday, students at Ainabkoi school in Uasin Gishu, did not realize that many of them would be in for a rough time. What happened exactly?

Four dormitories at Ainabkoi Secondary school were destroyed last night by a fierce fire which also burned property belonging to more than 200 students.

The fire started in one of the dormitories as most of the students were in classes for night studies.

Eldoret East OCPD Robert Omanga says a few students who were in the dormitories were rescued and that no one was injured.

Omanga also added that they were investigating the cause of the fire. This will be the second school fire that has taken place this year.

Just last week anxiety gripped parents at the Ngara Girls High School, Nairobi, following a fire incident at one of the school dormitory on Saturday evening.

The school management said in a statement the fire broke out at around 6:45 pm in Emerald Dorm.

The fire was put out by firefighters from the Nairobi County with help from staff and the neighbouring community.

"The fire happened while students were attending their preps. No student was in the dorm at that time, and a roll call has confirmed that all are safe and are accounted for," the management said.
