AMMAN — Prime Minister Omar Razzaz on Monday visited the fire-hit Musab Bin Omeir Secondary School for Boys in Ramtha. The fire, which was started by an electric fault on Sunday, caused shortness of breath to dozens of students and a teacher.

Lauding the responsiveness of the school’s teachers, Civil Defence Department (CDD) personnel and Ramtha residents who were swift in extinguishing the fire and evacuating the students, the premier conveyed His Majesty King Abdullah's greetings.

Touring the school, Razzaz directed a team to immediately carry out the necessary maintenance in order to allow classes to resume as soon as possible, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. Students of the school will resume their classes at Al Miqdad School in Ramtha during a night shift until repair works are complete.
