There was concern after two schools in the Western Region burned down around the same time on the night of Sunday April 9.

The first case was reported at St Peter’s Boys High School in Mumias, Kakamega County.

Almost immediately after another fire was reported at Kivaywa Boys High School, which is also in Kakamega County.

In St Peters Mumias, a fire destroyed a dormitory with a capacity of 90 students to the ground.

No deaths have been reported since the fire was first reported after students went to the dining hall.

Principal Crisphinus Owino, however, confirmed that the students lost all their personal belongings and bedding in the incident.

“We have extra mattresses and bunk beds to accommodate the 80 affected students.

“We are making plans for the remaining 10 students,” the director revealed about the steps the school had taken after the inferno.

However, Kakamega County Firefighters took action and quickly extinguished the fire from nearby dormitories.

“We don’t know if it was an electrical fault and it was deliberately switched on by one of the students,” Owino disclosed.

St Peters said the fire will not disrupt academic activities while in Kivaywa information about it was not immediately available.

In Kivaywa Boys, located in Matete ward, Lugari constituency, it was reported that a fire destroyed two dormitories.

In both cases, the cause of the fire is not known, but the investigation is already extensive.
