Srinagar, March 28 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a government-run school building was gutted in a fire mishap in Kupwara district this evening.
The school building was gutted in Nowgam Handwara area of the district.
Reports said that fire broke out in a Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) in Inderdaji Nowgam and within no time spread to the whole structure and despite efforts by the locals, the school building could not be saved.
In charge of Fire Service Station Qalamabad, Nazir Ahmad Tantray told media that they left for 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.
