Wichita elementary school hit by fire

College Hill Elementary School

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita officials are unsure where students at an elementary school that was damaged by fire will attend classes when the school year begins on Wednesday.

The fire hit College Hill Elementary School on Monday, the day the school had scheduled an open house and celebration to mark the end of a $1.2 million bond project.

Teachers and a few students were in the building but no one was injured.

Superintendent John Allison told the school board Monday night that students might have to be relocated for the beginning of the school year.

The bond issue funded a new multipurpose room that will also serve as a storm shelter.

The cause of the fire has not been determined.
