Buruburu Girls High School in Nairobi has been closed indefinitely.
The closure follows a school fire that broke out in one of the dorms on Sunday evening.
The school’s Board of Management made the decision after a meeting with some parents on Monday.
The Board director, Mr Chairman Lazarus Opicho, said the school will permit understudies to return home for a couple of days as examinations concerning the fire begin.
"Guardians will be permitted to return home with the young ladies and the date when they should return will be conveyed. Any young lady who will be viewed as engaged with the fire episode will confront the law," he said. For those whose guardians won't make it, they will stay in school under close security. As at Monday morning, 59 understudies were getting treatment at Metropolitan Hospital, the office said.
The students are being treated for smoke inward breath. As per an assertion from the clinic, thirty other people who were dealt with have been released. The fire is accounted for to have almost diminished one of the 45 work areas that houses understudies from various classes to remains.
