A minor fire broke out at a girls' school in Al-Jahra area causing mild injuries, the Ministry of Education's Undersecretary Dr. Haitham Al-Athari said on Wednesday. Al-Athari told KUNA that the blaze gutted one of the school's classrooms, as smoke billows suffocated five students, all of whom were whisked to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Moreover, the Ministry of Education's official blamed an electrical glitch for the fire, which he said was dealt with promptly and safely.
