School fires have been on the rise in the recent past as Education Ministry together with other stakeholders involved are trying up to come up with amicable solutions to minimize the menace which has rocked a number of boarding schools.
And news just in from Laikipia County, panic has engulfed Thome Boys Secondary school in Tigithi Laikipia East with reports indicating that fire has ravaged a dormitory with panicked students and teachers seeking safety and one student confirmed dead.
Further report indicates that this is the third time the area is experiencing a span of school fires in only two weeks raising further questions on the main cause behind the sudden rise in fires.
This comes after another fire incident was witnessed in Ofafa Jericho High School in late September with forty students hospitalized after inhaling the smoke.
The cause of the fire has not been immediately confirmed with rescue operations underway to save lives.
