Fire has razed a block of two female hostels at the Federal Government College, Keffi, Nasarawa State.

The fire, which started around 7.45 pm on Sunday and raged on till Monday morning, reduced the entire structure to ashes.

“The students were in the dining hall when the fire started. Books and properties of the students were all razed down, nothing was removed,” a senior staff of the school told NAN, craving anonymity.

The source, however, said that no one was killed.

“One student, who did not go to the dining hall and was sleeping in one of the hostels, was almost affected.

“Immediately she sensed the smoke, she jumped through the window and sustained some slight injuries. No one else was affected,” the staff said.

The source described the incident as “shocking and devastating”, saying that it was the first in the history of the 18-year-old school.
