Boiler Building Fire at the Kasaan School

A fire that broke out on Monday at the Barry Craig Stewart Kasaan School destroyed an adjacent boiler building, but no one was injured and the school building was saved.

Nick Higson, assistant superintendent of Southeast Island School District, says the fire started at about 4:15 p.m. in a structure housing a wood-fire boiler adjacent to the school. Higson says volunteer firefighters responded, but by time they arrived, the blaze was out of control.

“They did an amazing job. Zach West is the fire chief and VPSO out in Kasaan. Huge, huge kudos to him for coordinating the efforts. Shane Scamahorn is the lead teacher in Kasaan. He was amazing. He kept calm under pressure and kept us informed of what was going on. Between him and Zach, they lead the charge and they saved the school to be quite honest with you.”
