Reports are that students of the school were sitting exams at the time.
Three appliances were dispatched but upon arrival at the college, the blaze had already been extinguished by school officials.
Reportedly, a pile of garbage that had been sitting beneath an inner staircase at the institution had been deliberately set on fire. This is not the first incidence of this nature to have taken place at the school.
Southern Division police and the fire prevention department are both investigating.
