I just came back from the scene (I live in New Pal, not W Lafayette) and the rumors are running as you would expect.

I will say that someone was setting off fireworks - the heavy stuff - around town tonight... and I mean around town, as in from a moving vehicle. Someone indicated that the break-in alarm went off before the fire alarm, so arson is not out of the question - including a firework shot at the building. Again, JUST RUMOR.

That being said, the class that burned was on the NE side of the school. But smoke was coming out of the W entrance to the building, and the fire department was checking the roof in that area.

School will likely be out tomorrow due to the smoke damage... no way the kids should be in the building for another day or so.

I wish they would cut in to let you know if the school is okay - I am sure those kids will not have school tommarow - I like the first comment - probably a test. LOL (I too hope it is something that was wrong with the building and not the kids. If it was the kids then I will have to say the kids have gotten out of control!)
Good luck New Pal!

No, if a kid is responsible for this, he should be placed in a PMITA prison for a few days to learn fear. His parents should receive a claw hammer to the face for their ignorance in parenting.

It's almost more comforting to think it was some kid... it's a lot easier/cheaper to throw that kid down the toilet of our society than to re-wire an entire school.

well im a student at that school and i cant think of anyone that would want to burn it down causing us to have to stay there for even one more day than were supposed to in school make up days. but he said that it was coming from an english classroom. well as far as i know the majority if not all of our english classrooms have about 30 desk/computers for students. with all that wiring who knows what could go wrong.

im also a student at the school, Im not going to rule out it being an accident, but the timing just seems too perfect, someone not liking going back to school after a 3 day weekend. Plus ive noticed that at least for guys, english is probably the least favorite subject of them all at New Pal. So if a place would be targeted, it would be the english wing.

But as it was already said, there are a few rooms down there with computers that are enclosed in tight spaces, could of had something go wrong, anything is possible.
