According to reports, a devastating fire claimed the lives of at least 28 individuals at a boarding school in a Monrovia suburb, the capital of Liberia. The tragic incident is believed to have occurred in the early hours of Wednesday, September 18, 2019, while students of the Koranic boarding school were asleep in a building adjacent to their mosque in the Paynesville suburb of Monrovia.
