GEORGETOWN, Guyana, CMC – Another girls' dormitory was destroyed by fire on Thursday.

According to police reports, shortly before 3 a.m. Thursday, the blaze destroyed another dormitory, this time in Karasabai, Rupununi, in Region Nine, but so far, there are no reports of injuries. 

The cause of the fire was not immediately known.

According to government officials, “a full team of technical officials and a cabinet member are en route to Karasabai, Region Nine, where a dormitory was destroyed by fire.”

This incident follows last month's tragedy in which a fire at the Mahdia Secondary School's female dormitory killed 20 students.

 A 15-year-old student has been charged with murder during the course of arson.
