Suspicious Fire Leads to Closure of Byron School
Byron, MN (KROC AM News) - Classes were canceled Wednesday at a Byron school because of a fire.
A passing motorist spotted flames coming from the rear of the Zumbro Education District South Campus building around 8:00 PM Tuesday and called 911.
Byron firefighters arrived to find flames shooting up the rear wall of the building. The fire was confined to a dumpster and it was put out right away. Firefighters had to force open a door to get inside the school and see if the flames had spread to the interior of the building.
