Fire delays school in Lincoln County

STANFORD - A Kentucky school district has delayed the first day of classes after a blaze destroyed part of the central office complex.

Lincoln County Superintendent Karen Hatter told media that the fire on Wednesday afternoon destroyed the part of the building that houses early childhood education programs, student records and food service. Firefighters were able to save the district's central office and its alternative school, but they won't be available for use immediately.

No injuries were reported.

Officials say because of the fire damage, they have decided to push back the start of the school year. The first day of classes had been scheduled on Thursday. Now, officials say they are planning for Monday.

Fire officials say they are still investigating the cause of the blaze.

As firefighters fought the blaze, some workers stood outside.

"My entire office is in there with all of my work," district employee Pam Hart told WKYT-TV. "You have to count your blessings. There's a loss but it's only a physical loss no human loss and that's the most important thing."

Hatter said the district will relocate the programs that were housed in the damaged areas.

"Our community has responded with many offers" of space to use, she told the Lexington Herald-Leader.
