Fire in EHS bathroom

Posted

Elizabeth High School students were evacuated after a trash fire was started in the boys bathroom.

On April 3, the Elizabeth Fire Protection District was on scene after a male student allegedly started the fire in the bathroom on the north side of the school.

Students were out of the school for approximately 45 minutes and firefighters searched the entire school before permitting anyone back in the building, said Kellie Lanphere, human resources director for the Elizabeth C-1 School District.

The male student who allegedly started the fire was caught on security cameras and taken to the Elizabeth Police Department for questioning.

Lanphere said the bathroom did have slight damage, but no other areas of the school were affected. She said, at this point there is no motive for the fire.

Superintendent Paul Dellacroce said the appropriate disciplinary actions are being taken according to district policies.

“We are working with both the Elizabeth Fire Protection District and the Elizabeth Police Department,” he said.
