Sources, however, claimed that the blaze could have been caused by an electric fault.

The fire was put out with the assistance of KenGen fire engines before it could spread to the nearby teachers' quarters.

The school which hosts at least 700 day and boarding pupils is located next to Gitaru Hydroelectric Power Station.
