Fire broke out at Chebwagan Boys' Secondary School in Kericho County on Monday night.

The 8pm inferno, whose cause is yet to be established, consumed property of yet unestablished value.

The fire broke out as the students were attending evening studies.

The students and residents from the neighbourhood desperately attempted to put out the fire but with little success.

"There are no injuries so far reported as a result of the fire whose cause is yet to be established,” said Ms Felicia Nanjala, the Bureti Sub-County police commander.

Ms Nanjala said fire departments from Kericho County and multinational tea companies in the region had been alerted to help put out the blaze.
