A government-run school building was gutted in a fire mishap in Nowgam Handwara in frontier north Kashmir’s Kupwara district this evening.

Reports said that a fire broke out in a Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) in Inderdaji Nowgam and within no time spread to the whole structure. Despite efforts by the locals, the school building could not be saved.

Incharge Fire Service Station Qalamabad, Nazir Ahmad Tantray told GNS that they left to the site soon after receiving intimation about the breaking out of fire.

“However once we reached Nowgam, we were informed by the locals that the bridge was only allowed for light motor vehicles (LMVs), because of which we could not proceed to the actual site”, he said.

“In the course of time, the school building received substantial damage”, he further said. (GNS)
