The fire broke out in the dormitory in the wee hours of today morning, razing down the temporary structure hosting primary seven pupils. The temporary structure was partly built using wooden materials. Lameck Kigozi, the Greater Masaka deputy region police commander confirmed the fire, saying all pupils escaped unhurt.
Apparently, Sembabule district education officials, police and the school administrators are holding a crisis meeting about the incident. In November last year, 11 students of St Bernard's SS Manya in Rakai district were burnt to death when fire gutted the boy's dormitory
