A Mahindodaya technology laboratory at Peruwawa Maha Vidyalaya in Polpithigama, Kurunegala was completely burnt in a fire at around 6.30 pm yesterday.
An electrical leakage was identified as the cause to the fire.
Forty two computers that were in the laboratory were thus burnt.
In 2014 another Mahindodaya laboratory in a school in Anuradhapura caught fire. During the fire all computers and other equipment were destroyed.
