Oddly- an automatic fire alarm had initially been dispatched at 9:05 a.m. Friday morning- then was cancelled a minute later by dispatch as per notification "from the alarm company."
However at 9:10 a.m.- KC-MO Fire dispatch sent out a five-company response "regular alarm" to the school.
Pumper 37 arrived at 9:13 a.m. to report nothing visible- but the school was "being evacuated" of students and faculty.
The 2 fires are quickly put out- and an arson invesigator has been summoned to the scene.
NOTE: The "corporate" news media in this town has quit reporting these disruptions (apparently until it gets REALLY serious)- but prior incidents during this school year at Southwest High School can be found in THIS (and other) CSW post.
