Preliminary findings indicate that the fire likely started from an unoccupied lower bed. A student on the upper bunk noticed the increasing heat and promptly alerted the matron. Despite her attempts to control the fire with an extinguisher, it escalated beyond containment, necessitating the evacuation of the students over salvaging their belongings.
