Dormitory razed as power generator explodes

11 October 2015, 18:13 Joseph Njung'eh

Nanyuki - A group of 30 students at Doldol Boys High School in Laikipia County have escaped death by whisker after their dormitory caught fire on Sunday.

The fire was caused by a power generator which exploded during testing.

According to the school principal, Lawrence Kariuki, the dormitory was burnt to ashes as nothing was salvaged including the students’ properties.

Nobody was injured during the incident, Kariuki said, adding that the fire was put out by students and non-staff members.

“The school power generator was being tested since it has not been used for several months. We suspect it developed mechanical problems and thus caused the fire. We are counting huge loses,” said Kariuki.

The incident occurred as Form Four students are at homestretch preparing for their final examinations.
