Students at Brainstorm High School in Nyakambu cell, Southern division in Kabale Municipality are counting losses following a fire outbreak in two of male dormitories.
According to students who spoke to our reporter, the two burnt dormitories are; Lumumba and Kaguta.
Students narrated that they had seen electric sparks since Monday night until yesterday afternoon at around 2:00PM when the dormitories caught fire.
Students at the school immediately responded to the situation but in vain until the fire rescue team from Kabale central police reached the scene and put off the fire.
Speaking to our reporter shortly, the school head teacher Bernad Bikorwomuhangi said that the situation was put under control and fire did not spread to other dormitories.
He was however worried that the situation might traumatize Senior Four candidates whose properties were also affected hence affecting their performance in the forthcoming UCE Exams.

By press time Maate told journalists that no death had occurred.
