A SMOKEY BUSINESS—Astvaldur Eiriksson breathes in a lungful of fresh air as he comes out of the still-smoking 6th grade building. Wearing an oxygen breathing apparatus he had gone inside the school to direct a stream of water onto the burning insulation in the roof. Though burning very fast, the fire was put out in seven minutes. Fire Guts Classroom; Children -Uninjured; A fire broke out in building T-20, the sixth grade class- room, on Thursday, May 13. It started at about 12:30 p.m. The building was empty, and the doors locked. The cause of the fire was not im- mediately known, but it was thought to have started when the stove-pipe overheated and set the insulation in the ceiling on fire. The fire depart-'^ ment quickly extinguished it. The fire was first spotted by young Eddie Rogers as he was sitting on top of a slide opposite the school building. He shouted "fire," and a friend of his, Willie Grower, immediately ran to a firebox and phoned the fire sta- tion. The call came in at 12:38 p.m. and the Fire Department reached the fire and had it out in seven minutes. According to Fire Chief Eiriks- son, the strange thing about the fire was that it built up so quick- ly. At 12:30 p.m. there was no sign of smoke. Someone had tried to get into the building to take the movie projector to another classroom. Fifteen minutes later the fire had almost completely gutted the front half of the build- ing. The insultion was burned away and the heat had melted most of the fixtures. Books Burnt The books that had been lying on the top of desks were some- what burnt, while those under the desks were water-logged. Only the books that had been left inside the metal desks were untouched. Nevertheless, most of the desks were still useable, and the books in the rear part of the building, which had been unharmed, were in very good shape. The sixth-graders were given the rest of the day off. The next day they moved into the unoc- cupied side of T-15, and will prob- ably remain there until the new school is finished.
