The fire, whose causes remain unknown at the moment, saw the fire engulf an entire block of hostels, starting before the dawn. The firemen of the University were the first on site but the fire quickly went out of control.

It wasn't until two hours after the fire began that they were able to bring it under control, after much of the fire had subsided.

The details of the extent of the damage remains unknown, but we're certain that it will run into millions, considering it was student living quarters. Three injuries have been reported and a few cases of asthmatic attacks, but no lives have been lost at the time of filing this report. Stay with us for more updates.
