She said that the fire outbreak burnt down two classroom blocks, adding that the fire equally destroyed chairs, tables, and office stationery within the school.

The Mayor of Umuahia North Chief Ikeji, after he assessed the extent of the damage caused by the fire, sympathized with the pupils and the school management, as he assured them that the government would come to their aid by ensuring the school was fixed.

The Mayor however warned those who are in the habit of setting farmland ablaze to desist from such acts, as these have clearly shown to be destructive.
