Goodness gracious, great balls of fire

What an exciting day it's been, and it's not even noon! During the early hours of the morning, before school began and before everyone had arrived, a fire broke out in the elevator shaft of one of my school buildings! It was a small blaze and was contained quickly, thankfully (UPDATE: Apparently there were no flames, just enough activity to set off the alarm in time to prevent any real fire). Everyone is safe (as is all of the artwork) and we are proceeding with a normal day. The hallways sure do stink, though.

It was pretty exciting to see the fire trucks leaving as I pulled into the parking lot--I felt like a child at a parade (minus the candy).

Coincidentally, it's Fire Prevention Week. Ha! Talk about a teachable moment.

Don't worry, Edvard--all is well!
