Fire guts 5 classrooms at Tenwek High School in Bomet

At least five classrooms at Tenwek High School in Bomet have been gutted by night fire.

Police on Friday said there were no casualties in the Thursday night fire as all students were asleep in their dorms.

CAUSE

Bomet police boss Samson Rukunga said the fire, whose cause still remains unknown, started in one of the classrooms before spreading to others.

The county’s two county government fire engines had technical problems and it took more two hours for the students and villagers to put out the flames.
