Fire at EHS still under investigation

By Rosalind Russell – A shop vac caused a fire on Wednesday afternoon at Espanola High School leading to a fire drill and evacuation of both the high school and AB Ellis Public School.

Fire Chief Mike Pichor says a shop vac caught on fire but no one was hurt in the evacuation.

He says it was a small fire but there was heavy smoke damage, so firefighters were on the scene for several hours venting the space.

He adds insurance will assess the smoke damage.
