Students from St Luke’s Boys High School in Kimilili, Bungoma County, spent the night in the cold after their dormitory was razed by fire.
There were no injuries, as students were in class for their preps, during the incident.
Principal Innocent Siro said property of an unknown value was destroyed and the cause of the fire is yet to be known.
Investigations into what started the fire have commenced.
Staff faulted the fire brigade for delays in responding to the incident.
They called on Governor Wycliffe Wangamati to probe the matter to avoid a similar incident in future.
