Reports were received at around 20:00 from members of the community about a school burning, Colonel Ronel Otto said.

It was confirmed that four classrooms were destroyed.

The cause of the fire was not known.

Forensic services would conduct investigations to determine the cause, Otto said.

No injuries were reported.

In April this year, Vuwani residents burnt down and vandalised dozens of schools in protests against a Municipal Demarcation Board decision to merge the Vuwani municipality with parts of the Malamulele municipality in the Vhembe district.

Nearly 53 000 pupils were affected by the protests and shutdown.
