Students were forced to evacuate Sacred Heart College as a fire tore through the buildings hosting classrooms. Firefighters were called to the College from Bamenda after the blaze started in the administrative block.
Although the flames seem to have been extinguished, smoke can still be seen coming from the classroom windows. A spokesman for the Francophone dominated police unit said officers were alerted to the fire by one of the discipline masters of the college.
A regiment from the Rapid Intervention Battalion, BIR were called to the scene to provide support to the fire crews in attendance. No injuries or casualties have been reported.
