Band Office and Gym burn down in Poplar Hill

On May 27,2003 around 6 or 7 p.m. a fire destroyed our Band Office and Gymnasium. The school was saved just in time.

The Band Office was connected to the Gym. The Gym was connected to the school. As the fire was going through the Gym, the people worked to try and put the fire out. They had a bulldozer cut off the Gym from the school. This effort saved the school.

The local fire fighters helped along with the local people.

A helicopter came in and dropped some fire fighters off so they could help out too.

No one was hurt ... that was a good thing.

Everyone in the community watch as all this was happening.

We took some pictures of all this and posted them at
