NewsTown Talk

Friona firefighters responded to a fire call about 8:30 a.m. New Year’s Day at a portable classroom building on Euclid across from the primary school. The building housed a computer lab and classroom. Major damage was done to the interior and the building will have to be replaced. Initial reports say it was probably an electrical problem in the AC/heating unit but the official cause has not been determined. Insurance adjusters and fire investigators were expected to be on the scene this week. Students will have class in the Early Childhood building adjacent to the primary school. Classes resume Monday January 9.

Even on New Year’s Day.
