Three people, including two children, died after a massive fire broke out at AND Convent School and a cloth godown located below it in Dabua Colony of Faridabad, on Saturday. 

As per police, a woman teacher and her two children were reportedly living on the school premises. They were injured and got suffocated owing to dense smoke and were rushed to a nearby hospital, where they succumbed to their injuries.   

The school is built on first floor and there is a garment store on the ground floor. It is being reported that the shop caught fire due to short-circuit. Soon after, the fire was ablaze at the school. As summer vacations were on, there were no students in the school.  Cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained.

"Fire tenders are present here. The situation is now under control. We will ascertain the cause of the fire," a police official present at the spot said. 

This comes weeks after a blaze ripped through a coaching centre located in Gujarat's Surat and killed 20 people, mostly students, and injuring many others.
