Boys lose all their belongings

Jun 29, 2010

Sixty seven boarder boys of Mendrelgang Middle Secondary School in Tsirang lost all their belongings when the hostel they were occupying was burnt down today.

Top floor of the newly constructed double-storied hostel was completely destroyed by the fire. However, the ground floor escaped from the mishap.

The fire which started at around 1 pm was controlled after about two hours. Fortunately, the students were in the MP hall for their final mid-term examination and there was no one in the hostel when the fire broke out.

Students and teachers controlled the fire before it could spread to another double storied hostel.

The hostel has just been handed over to the school this year, after its construction was delayed by over two years.

Meanwhile, on the command of His Majesty the King, a team lead by Dasho Zimpoen Penjor is on their way to Tsirang to meet the students and deliver immediate relief.
