Hundreds of students escaped death by a whisker after two dormitories caught fire at Two Dormitories Burnt Down At Makuyu Girls Secondary School.
The two facilities were gutted down at 8 am on Sunday morning as the students were doing their general cleaning.
Personal items belonging to 130 students were destroyed in the fire that was extinguished with the help of neighbors.
The students are however still in the school as security officers led by area deputy county commissioner Titus Macharia and education officers hold a meeting with the management of the school.
This happened a few days after eight students were arrested after attempting to burn down a dormitory at the neighboring Makuyu boys secondary school.
The students were caught with a bottle of petrol and had set a curtain on fire but the fire was contained before it spread to the entire dormitory.
At the same time, students from Gatura girls attempted to burn a dormitory on Saturday night.
The students managed to burn down two beds before residents and the police moved in and contained it.
