Students’ properties worth Millions of shillings at Kabale Brainstorm High in Nyakambu cell, Southern division in Kabale Municipality to today afternoon have been burnt into ashes after a fire outbreak burning two dormitories that house male students.

The burnt dormitories are Lumumba and Kaguta. Students who spoke to our reporter narrated that they started experiencing short circuits in the burnt dormitories last week until today afternoon at 2:00 PM when non candidate classes were sitting for their midterm exams and they heard an alarm from other students who were free.

After the alarm, all students at the school immediately responded to rescue the situation but in vain until the fire rescue team from Kabale central police station responded to the scene and put off the fire. Among the properties destroyed include Books, Mattresses, Shoes, beddings, clothes among others.

Speaking to Our reporter shortly, the school head teacher Bernad Bikorwomuhangi said that after the incident happened, he immediately communicated to Kabale district police commander who referred him to the fire rescue team that responded in time and rescued the situation.

He added that the situation was put under control and fire did not spread to other dormitories. He is also worried about the situation suspecting it to traumatize Senior Four candidates whose properties were also affected hence affecting the performance in the forthcoming UCE and UACE Exams.

Elly Maate, the Kigezi region police spokesperson confirmed the incident and said that police are investigating the likely cause of the fire. By press time Maate told journalists that no death had occurred.
