Fire guts Jameson High School
A fire gutted Jameson High school in Kadoma, damaging the school’s boys hostel where the kitchen and dining hall were destroyed.
The fire gutted part of Warne Hostel building on Friday night.
The school headmaster Abenol Matsiwe said preliminary investigations suggest the fire might have been caused by a gas tank leakage.
“We are still waiting for investigations to ascertain the exact cause of the fire, but our internal investigations point out to a gas tank leakage.
“There is a gas tank, which we saw with its valve open and we strongly suspect that it is the one that caused the fire,” he said.
Matsiwe said the kitchen was totally destroyed and the dining hall had its furniture destroyed too including tables and chairs and food that was inside.
Wings with the boys’ beds, he said, were spared.
He said among other items that were destroyed was an industrial gas stove, plates, cups and an assortment of food.
“The fire started around 8:15pm on Friday while l was on my way from the barber. Fortunately, pupils were also studying and they managed to evacuate their items. No one was injured.
“We alerted the responsible authorities who responded quickly and managed to put out the fire by 10:21,” said Matsiwe.
He said the boys will temporarily use other dining halls.
