4-year-old girl killed in fire at govt school
Bijapur (Chhattisgarh), March 7: A four-year-old girl was killed after a major fire broke out in a government-run residential school in Chhattisgarh’s tribal-dominated Bijapur district in the wee hours of Thursday, officials said. The deceased was not a student of the school. She was staying with her relative, who is a student of class 8 in the school, they said. The blaze erupted, apparently due to a short-circuit, at around 1 am at the porta cabin (prefabricated portable structure) school for girls in Chintakonta village under Awapalli police station limits, Bijapur Collector Anurag Pandey said. Visuals of the spot showed the porta cabin structure was completely gutted. Porta cabins are used for setting up school infrastructure in some of the Naxal-affected areas of the state. The residential school has three blocks which were set up using bamboo. The fire rapidly spread in all the blocks and the structures were gutted, he said. (PTI)
