HHS fire causes $100,000 in damage
An electrical fire in the art room of Hahnville High School melted equipment and sent smoke billowing through the school.
Schools spokeswoman Rochelle Cancienne-Touchard said that the fire department was on the scene within 10 minutes and that the fire was put out before it could spread to any other area of the school.
Cancienne-Touchard said that the fire was caused by electrical equipment in the room, like computers, printers and scanners.
She added that despite the building being full of smoke, the only damage done was in the art room and the common area.
Electrical equipment and one wall in the room will have to be replaced and water damage from the emergency sprinklers leaked into the carpet in the school’s common area, where the lockers are located.
Cancienne-Touchard said that the carpet will be replaced and that all repairs will be done before the start of the school year in August.
The repairs will cost around $105,000, not including school custodian or maintenance worker labor costs, Cancienne-Touchard said.
The fire happened just a week after an art camp at the school ended.
