TRAGEDY struck prestigious Plumtree High School on Tuesday night, when a monumental double storey hostel was reduced to a shell in an inferno destroying property worth millions of dollars with a teacher's family escaping death by a whisker.

It was suspected that the fire was an act of theft and arson.

The fire started shortly after 9PM and was discovered by a history teacher, identified as Mr Ndlovu who was housed in an apartment on the ground floor of the monumental Lloyd Hostel which accommodates Upper Sixth pupils.
