Another girls’ dormitory in Guyana was destroyed by fire on Thursday.
According to police reports, shortly before 3:00 am, the blaze destroyed a dormitory in Karasabai, Rupununi, in Region nine, which is to the south of Guyana. So far, there have been no reports of injuries.
The cause of the fire was not immediately known.
According to government officials, “a full team of technical officials and a cabinet member are enroute to Karasabai, Region Nine, where a dormitory was destroyed by fire.”
This incident follows last month’s tragedy in which a fire at the Mahdia Secondary School’s female dormitory killed 20 students.
A 15-year-old student has been charged with murder during the course of arson.
