The fire that broke out on Thursday night razed down a building hosting two laboratories.
The students were awoken by smoke that engulfed the building.
Firefighters from Uasin Gishu County government rushed to the scene and put off the fire. Unfortunately, nothing was salvaged from laboratories.
The cause of the night fire that was not immediately established. No cases of injuries were reported.
Back in 2021, the wave of school fires in the country left parents and other education stakeholders demanding solutions from the government.
Schools, on the other hand, were also not lenient with parents and guardians in cases where the property was destroyed.
