BY UPESI REPORTER,NAIROBI,2ND MARCH,2020-A dormitory at the Lenana school in Nairobi has been destroyed after  fire broke out at the School’s Tom Mboya dormitory at about 7.40 am on Monday .The inferno has since been contained

According to the school  principal, William Kemei, no student was injured  during the incident noting that the dormitory’s 164 occupants were attending a school assembly.

“We got in with workers and teachers and a few students with some fire extinguishers to put out the fire, but it was still raging,” he stated .

“The fire spread so quickly but fire fighters arrived on time to contain the fire,” Kemei said.

The principal  said they suspected an electrical fault could have caused the fire saying, “there had been an incident on the same dormitory, and it’s been rewired so we hope there is no other reason.”

The 164 students will be accommodated in other dormitories as the administration works to restore the gutted down student residence according to the head teacher.
