Fire discovered at Columbus North


Follow The Republic:


COLUMBUS, Ind. — A smoldering fire was discovered Wednesday night at Columbus North High School.

Assistant Principal John Green said second-shift custodians contacted him about 9 p.m. when they smelled something burning and were unable to determine what it was. Green called 911, and Columbus firefighters arrived a short time later.

The source was traced to an insulation-wrapped pipe in a crawl space, where a laborer earlier that day had been using a welding torch that firefighters believe sparked the smoldering fire.
