FRANKFORT, N.Y.-- The Frankfort-Schuyler Junior and Senior High School was still closed Friday after a fire started in a classroom overnight Wednesday.
School officials say the fire left them with a lot to clean up this week.
The fire started in a classroom on the lower level of the school. Firefighters were able to contain it, for the most part, but smoke damaged or dirtied a good part of the building.
Superintendent Bob Reina explained, "There was soot on the computers, on tabletops, in the ceilings, on the walls and so all of those things are being cleaned. They're being scrubbed down, cleaned, removed and that's what's taking us longer than what we anticipated the beginning."
The school district says kids should be able to come back to school by Tuesday next week following the extended holiday weekend.
