Comboni Technical School

The boys’ dormitory of the Comboni Technical School in Sogakope in the Volta Region has been razed down by fire when the students were writing their mock examinations.

Personal effects of the students and other valuables were destroyed by the fire.

Mr.John Baaretim, the Sogakope Fire Officer who confirmed this to the Ghana News Agency said some of the students tried to salvage some belongings but they were deterred by the flames.

He said it took the swift intervention of his team to bring the fire under control though the dilapidated nature of the building impeded their efforts.

Mr Baaretim said the Fire Service would do their investigation and soon make the cause of the fire known.

Some of the students blame the cause of the fire on an early hour power outage in the Sogakope District.

“Today, before we went to class, there was no light so we suspected some electrical gadgets were left on, this could have been the cause of the fire outbreak.” a student said.

Only final year students were in school during the fire outbreak, following the President’s directive for all first and second-year students to be sent home to prevent the spread of COVID 19.
