Sycamore High School closed for 2 days after fire
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Sycamore High School will be closed Wednesday and Thursday after a fire started around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Part of the roof over the old natatorium caught fire during demolition, according to the school’s tweet.
Students had already been dismissed when the roof caught fire, Sycamore High School added. The building was safely evacuated, the school said in another tweet.
Community Relations Director Mallory Bonbright says the cause of the fire is unknown but says there was minor damage to the inside of the school.
“Fire crews were able to respond really quickly,” explained Bonbright. “From the time the call came in until the time the fire was out, it was about 15 minutes. No one was hurt. Everybody made it out safely. Those that were left were evacuated safely, and thank goodness it wasn’t any worse of a situation like it could have been.
