The affected students now share beds with their colleagues as authorities launch an investigation into the cause of the fired.

The students were returning from evening preps when they saw smoke coming from their dormitory, the headmaster of the school, Agyapong Ntra, is reported to have said.

“There was a fire outbreak but it is currently under control. It was last night around 8.30 pm when students were at prep, some of them went out and saw smoke coming out of one of the dormitories so they drew alarm and teachers together with students rushed to the scene. Others too called the Fire Service so they rushed to the scene,” he told Accra-based Citi FM.

46 students were affected so at the moment they are perching with their colleagues.”
