According to him, the firefighters responded quickly to the fire.

“Tragically, the fire had already ravaged nine out of the fourteen classrooms, leaving a significant portion of the school in ruins.

” Through meticulous investigation, it was determined that the fire originated from an undergrowth that had been deliberately set ablaze by an unidentified individual. The flames then rapidly spread to the school building, causing extensive damage, ” he said.
