"The boys were leaving a church service to the dining hall for their supper when the incident occurred," said Fr Micheni.
The director added that the affected students would be housed in other dormitories before they make a decision Friday.
No casualties were reported during the 7pm incident.
The students and workers managed to salvage a few belongings.
