The newly constructed dormitory in Maranda High School has gone up in flames in the latest case of students unrest.
Reports indicate that the students claimed they were fatigued and needed a break, before going ahead and setting the dormitory on fire.
The dormitory is said to hold at least 500 students. It had four wings accommodating 178 of 400 students.
All the students escaped unhurt.
