Fire razes dorm at St Mary’s Yala High School in Siaya

BY UPESI NEWS CORRESPONDENT,16TH JAN,2017-Property worth millions of shillings went up in smoke when night fire razed a 100-bed capacity dormitory at St Mary’s Yala High School in Siaya.

School officials says  that the fire broke out at 9pm Sunday as students attended evening preps.

School principal Bonventure Olando said the flames completely destroyed students’ personal belongings, including clothes and shoes.

The blaze was first noticed by some students who raised an alarm, alerting their colleagues, Mr Olando said.


“Their effort failed to salvage their belongings failed as the fire was  massive,” he said.

The entire Kizito dorm was burned down and Mr Olando said they had launched investigations to establish the cause of the fire.

He said parents should not panic because their sons were safe and no one was injured.

The school’s board of management is set to meet tomorrow and decide the fate of the affected students.
