A Molotov cocktail or incendiary device was thrown through a window at El Dorado High School early Sunday morning. The School District said the device started a fire which triggered a sprinkler system. The classroom, which is used to teach English courses, should be cleaned up and operational by Wednesday.
Students at Bracebridge and Muskoka Lakes Secondary School were evacuated briefly this morning following a fire in the school’s woodworking shop. The fire was reported at 10 a.m., and was soon extinguished by the school sprinkler system. Students were evacuated as a precaution, but returned to class within the hour.
A fire at Tempe’s Kyrene Middle School caused the evacuation of about 1,300 students and 80 staff members on Thursday morning. A teacher noticed smoke coming out of a classroom at the school moments before the sprinkler system was activated and the fire was put out. The fire was caused by an electrical motor failure in the skylight system. One student complained about breathing problems, but no other injuries were reported, according to the city of Tempe.
