It took the intervention of the fire service to douse the fire. Mr Opare-Addo told Joy News the fire team which put out the fire has begun investigating the cause of the fire.

Although the cause of the fire is yet to be known, it is believed to have been caused by an electrical appliance that was left on by a student in the dormitory.

The displaced students have been temporarily housed in dormitories of final year students who completed few weeks ago.
