Classes Resume At Cameron High School After Fire

CAMERON (KFSM) — Classes at Cameron High School will resume on Wednesday (Sept. 13), school officials said.

The school building went up in flames on August 29.

The LeFlore County Sheriff’s Office determined that the fire was not the result of criminal activity.

The Cameron Schools superintendent said they believed the fire started from electrical issues. Investigators determined the fire started inside a closet in the school’s office.

It took fire crews about an hour and a half to contain the fire, and crews were containing hot spots until 4 a.m. the next morning.

For the time being, classes will be held in two different buildings. One is behind the high school, and another is by the elementary school down the street.

“We are ready to get back into school and return to some kind of normalcy,” said Superintendent  Jim Caughern. “It’s stressful and tiring. We would just like to get back on a routine,” Caughern said.

Plans are currently underway to rebuild the high school. Officials are meeting with architects to figure out a plan.

Cameron High is still in need of some supplies lost in the fire. Click here to donate to their gofundme page!
