Source The Ghana Report

Lassie-Tuolu Senior High (LASSEC) is forced to shut down temporarily following the fire incident that gutted the dining hall on Sunday, March 10, 2024, leaving the students traumatized.

The fire outbreak resulted in the destruction of both wooden and concrete structures used for storing food supplies.

Although authorities are currently investigating the cause of the fire incident, no casualties have been recorded.

“We realized that it was the hall that was on fire and so we rushed to the scene to put out the fire. Some of our masters were around and so they called the fire service who did not respond on time, but they came and controlled the situation”, a school prefect narrated the incident in an interview monitored by The Ghana Report with Asaase News.

“Now there is no food… This morning, we haven’t even taken our breakfast because of the situation, and as you can see most of the final-year students are rushing to see authorities about the way forward”.

District Chief Executive (DCE) for Wa East, Vida Dioretey, led a delegation to the school in response to the incident. She expressed concerns about the impact of the fire on academic activities, stating that there may be a need to temporarily close the school as students could face challenges accessing food.

“Let’s try and comport ourselves”, the DCE said while addressing the traumatised students. “We will look for a temporary solution to this problem while we look for a permanent one. I won’t take this story and keep it to myself I will let it out…If it comes to the worse and you are not to stay in school, wherever you find yourself live well, stay well as we find solutions to this issue”.

Meanwhile, the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) is yet to speak on the fire incident that has wreaked havoc in the Senior High School(SHS).
