The Grace International School, situated at Awolowo Street near the Kobiowu Mosque in Tanke, Ilorin South Local Government Area of Kwara State, experienced a devastating fire outbreak on Sunday, February 25, which resulted in the destruction of nine classrooms.

According to reports, the fire incident occurred after 6:00 pm, engulfing a significant portion of the 14-room building.

Confirming the incident, Hassan Adekunle, the spokesperson for the Kwara State Fire Service, stated that firefighters were promptly alerted and mobilized to the scene. However, upon arrival, a block of classrooms had already been consumed by the raging flames.

Adekunle attributed the origin of the fire to "a fire in the undergrowth that was intentionally ignited by an unknown person." The fire then rapidly spread to the school building, causing extensive damage.

Tragically, nine out of the 14 classrooms were ravaged by the inferno, leaving a considerable portion of the school in ruins.

In response, the Director of the Kwara State Fire Service, Prince Falade Olumuyiwa, stressed the importance of safety measures and urged the public to exercise caution in their daily activities to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future.
