Grade school tragedy in India

I just read of the school fire in Kumbakonam, India on and Yahoo News and am at a loss for words on this tragedy. Apparently, a fire, started by a short circuit, broke out in the school late this mornining while lunch was being prepared and quickly spread to multiple parts of the school because of the thatched roof. As of now they were reporting that at least around 80 people were killed, most were children between 4 and 9 years old.
