East Paulding High School Fire


Many of our citizens have asked about the fire that occurred at East Paulding High School today. The facts are as follows:


The Paulding County Fire Department is the lead agency working this incident. What we know is that a fire was possibly sparked from construction near the roof area of the main gymnasium. Fire crews have been on scene all afternoon trying to extinguish the fire and mitigate the smoke. We do not have any information as far as the seriousness of this fire but do know that there will be significant smoke and water damage to the gymnasium and locker room areas of East Paulding High School. For more detailed information, please contact the Paulding County Fire Department. #PauldingSheriff #PauldingFire #EastPauldingHighSchool

I have a good friend on site there now. He says it's bad. Lots of damage. The contractor used a blade to cut the metal roof and the sparks caught insulation on fire. It will end up being the contractors fault more than likely and they will likely be responsible for the cost of fixing it.
