A dormitory at Moi Girls' Secondary School in Mandera went up in flames on Sunday night, coming just two weeks after another fire broke out at the institution.

Three students were reportedly injured following the inferno. The three were rushed to Mandera County Referral Hospital for treatment.

Kenya Red Cross Society said the fire affected a dormitory at the school.

"No casualties have been reported and the fire has been put out," KRCS said on its official Twitter handle.

The Sunday night fire broke out at around 8 pm, according to officials.

Sources revealed to the Nation that following the inferno, two police reservists guarding the school and two teachers who were on duty were arrested.


"Those who have been arrested have been asked to give reports about the incident," said the source.

Another dormitory at the institution was torched on January 14.
