- Administrators now know what caused a fire in the Prentice School art room, and it's ironic.
A sign that guides people to an exit in case of a fire shorted out.
The fire happened last Tuesday.
No one was in the school at the time because of a snow day.
The fire was contained to the art room.
But smoke damage in the hallways kept students out of school for the rest of the week.
Crews cleaned up all the smoke damage in the school.
Students returned this past Monday.
An engineer still needs to check out the art room to make sure it is structurally sound.
The district administrator says students will need to make up some of the time they missed.
School leaders still need to figure out how specifically students will make up those days.
Once they do, the process will start after winter break.
