The Guyana Fire and Rescue Service says the report was received at approximately 4 o’clock this morning. Everyone was evacuated from the building and police say no one was injured, however, the building and all its contents were destroyed
It is unclear what started the massive fire but according to media reports, “Fire Service officials, accompanied by the police, the Minister of Home Affairs, Robeson Benn, the Minister of Education, Priya Manickchand, and other officials, are headed to Karasabai Village in Region 9 to carry out investigations and engage residents following the early morning fire”

The teenage girl was arrested and charged with murder for setting fire to the building. She became angry when her dorm mother confiscated her cell phone because she was having conversations with a man.
