"When the snow begins to melt, I always light the stove to help the building from the inside out. This morning at 6:30 a.m. a neighbor informed me the their was smoke coming out of the school building. When I arrived, this room was completely full of smoke. Something must have caught fire in the ceiling," said part owner, Bridenbaugh.The Bridenbaugh school building has been in the family for many year, and current owners Dale and Daryl just finished fixing the storm damage.
"We helped out quite a bit with the storm damage, and we are going to help with this project," said Greg Amstutz of Pandora Contracting. "This building has been in the family for many years, and we hope to help keep it that way."
