(note: the following post includes information about a small fire at Silverton High School. No students or staff members were harmed in any way by this fire)

A minor fire occurred at Silverton High School this afternoon.

At about 1:50, toward the end of 6th period, there was a small fire in the auto shop. The fire was quickly put out. Per protocol, the fire alarm was pulled and students were evacuated.

As we were aware that it would take the fire department 15-20 minutes to inspect the scene and clear us to return to the building, we decided to do a muster drill and account for all students in the school.

All students were accounted for and returned to the building by 2:25 to finish the school day.

If you have any questions please call the high school office.
