Properties belonging to the students and the management of Loretto Special Science School, Adazi Nnukwu in Anaocha L.G.A of Anambra State, which were yet to be quantified monetarily, were on Friday night damaged by fire.
DAILY POST gathered that the fire began at about 7:30pm in one of the dormitories housing students in the school’s Red House.
It was learnt that despite a short delay in arriving the scene by men of the Anambra State Fire Service, the fire was, however, put off at about 9pm, preventing it from escalating into other parts of the school.
“The Fire incident occurred upstairs of RED HOUSE Hostel/Domitory within the premises of the School compoud. As a result, many properties were damaged by the inferno.
In Onitsha a week ago, another school, Patterson College also had its dormitory gutted by fire. But unlike Loretto, one student who did not join others to the devotion, but stayed back in the dormitory was burnt to death.
