Kisii - A dormitory at Kenya's Eronge SDA Boarding Primary School in the Nyamira district was reduced to ashes after lightning struck the school on Wednesday night, a report says.
The lightning struck the dormitory around 19:00 as the students prayed at the school chapel.
The school head said no one was injured in the incident, Daily Nation reports, but property worth millions of shillings was lost, including students' belongings.
Such incidents are very common in the region, with many people losing their lives.
The latest such incident was reported at a funeral last year, with county governments being asked to install lightning arresters in learning institutions to prevent such deaths in future.
