Dryer Fire Causes Evacuation

September 13, 2011: There are a lot of rumors floating already about today’s small fire at the high school. The incident started when a dryer motor in the football laundry room over heated and caught fire. The fire was very small and was contained thanks to custodian Jeff Kochur. A small amount of smoke leaked into the tunnel hallway setting off the alarm as it should have. At NO TIME where any students or faculty in any danger. Our students and staff performed the fire evacuation flawlessly, so please disregard any news headlines that may be out there. – Officer Barrett
