New Details Emerges On Ofafa Jericho School Fire.

An incident of school fire that occurred on Monday 20th of September leaving 50 students of Ofafa Jericho High School hospitalised has emerged new details.

A police report showed that prior to the incident, the teacher on duty mobilised students to attend evening studies but some rejected the order and remained in the dormitory.

On noticing this, the teacher on duty went back and forced them out. One student, however, sneaked back and torched one cube which houses 20 students.

"Several students properties and personal effects were destroyed. Staff and some of the students helped put off the fire before it spread to other cubes," reads the police report in part.

The police report indicates that interrogations are underway even as they try and identify if there were other accomplices to the crime.

At least 50 students suffered severe smoke inhalation while putting out the fire. They were later admitted at the Metropolitan Hospital in Buruburu, Nairobi County.

Metropolitan Hospital Chief Executive Officer, Dr Kanyenje Gakombe, however stated that no student got burn injuries.

"We received 50 young men reported to have been in a fire incident at their school. They tried to put out the fire and in the process inhaled the smoke. Most of them have suffered smoke inhalation attacks," he explained.
