University Offices burnt in night fire

All the cash and examination papers were burnt in the fire.

The burnt building houses the campus’s major offices including Vice Chancellor’s offices (VC), various Deputy Vice Chancellor’s offices (DVC’s) for various departments, Finance offices, Deans of Students, among other offices.

The fire, which started at around mid-night at one of the offices spread to the entire block with efforts from Makueni County Government fire fighters to put off the fire and rescue property bearing no fruits.

Confirming the incident Kibwezi Assistant Commandant Vitalis Ogur said nothing was saved from the night fire adding that no one was injured.

“The fire started some few minutes past mid-night, though fire fighters from Makueni County Government put off the fire nothing was salvaged. No casualties reported since students sleep a distance away from the Administration block,” he said.

Preliminary assessment pointed to faulty electric cables to have sparked the fire.
