Chaotic scenes have been witnessed at Nairobi’s Buruburu Girls High School after a huge fire engulfed a dormitory in the school.
A section of the students trapped in the multi-storey building was spotted trying to escape the inferno through windows and jumping all the way to the ground.
According to reports by TUKO.co.ke several students have already been rushed to the hospital after the Sunday, October 31, fire incident whose cause is yet to be determined.
At the same time, panicked parents and guardians rushed to the institution to check on their children some of whom were rushed to the neighbouring Metropolitan Hospital.
According to the disturbing videos shared on social media, the hapless girls were spotted escaping through the windows as the dark smoke billowed the building and the air.
A passerby who spoke to The Standard said they tried accessing the school to help the students but they could not.
Buruburu Sub-County Police Commander Francis Kamau who confirmed the incident said it was too early to ascertain the cause and the extent of the damage.
