A number of girls from the Buruburu Girls School have been rushed to the hospital for treatment after their dormitory caught fire.
The girls have been taken to the Metropolitan Hospital which neighbours the school.
The school’s Kingdom Dormitory reportedly caught fire yesterday at around 4pm.
According to a form four student, the fire was started on each floor of the dormitory which is a three storey building.
Several girls were seen jumping through the window in a bid to escape the fire that had engulfed the dormitory.
Some parents who had arrived to check on the girls were also blocked from accessing the school compound.
