The fire was also said to have affected part of the principal's office as well as other adjoining offices, though no loss of life was recorded.

According to a witness, a number of textbooks and exercise books were also lost to the inferno.

The Director of the Kano State Fire Service, Mustapha Rilwanu who confirmed the incident, said contrary to insinuations that the fire occurred inside the barracks, it was only the school that was affected.

“We received a distress call from one Sgt. Inusa around 8:20 pm on Wednesday. No life was lost and we were able to put out the fire after we sent a reinforcement of two fire fighting vehicles from our central office and Jakara sub-station.
