Osino Senior High School Osino Senior High School

Fire has gutted the storeroom of Osino Senior High School in Fanteakwa South District in the Eastern Region.

Although the fire was extinguished at the early stages preventing it from spreading to the entire school facility, it caused damage to some logistics used for home economics practicals.

Additionally, some items belonging to the students were also burnt.

Three female students who attempted to pick their items from the smoke-filled room collapsed and were rushed to Kibi government hospital where they were stabilized and discharged.

According to the Senior Housemastermistress, she was informed by the students that thick smoke was billowing from the storeroom.

The Senior housemistress said even though the cause of the fire is not known, she wouldn’t rule out arson as some residents continue to intrude on the campus due to the lack of fence walls around the school.

Some of the students called on the government to urgently intervene and support them to their home economics examination practicals.
