Minor problem at Eastern Guilford yesterday

The image “https://i2.wp.com/www.gcsnc.com/images/easternpod.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. As we approach the one year anniversary of the fire, we get word that there may have been two small fires in the EGHS pod village yesterday. Authorities responded quickly and there were no injuries, thankfully. But we’re left to ponder and wonder about how it happened and why it happened.

See this staff report in yesterday’s News & Record:

Eastern students back in class after bathroom fire

Guilford County fire investigators are looking into what caused a small fire in a bathroom at Eastern Guilford High School this morning.

Guilford County Schools spokeswoman Cecilia Adams said students in the immediate vicinity of the affected pod building evacuated, but have already returned to class.

Alan Perdue, the county’s director of emergency services, said firefighters responded to the school at 10:40 a.m. Monday and found the building full of smoke. Perdue couldn’t say whether firefighters put out the fire, or if it had already been extinguished when they arrived.

Details are developing.
