GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) - The Green Bay Area School District has released surveillance video of the fire that damaged Preble High School.

The video from inside of preble's gym on the morning of August 8th. In it, you can see the fire began near some bleachers, eventually spreading throughout the gym.

Investigators are blaming rags full of chemicals that spontaneously combusted. That fire has forced district officials to delay the start of Preble's school year.


-- The Nursing Assistant meeting that was originally  scheduled for 10 AM on Monday, August 18th in room 137 at Preble will now be  held at 10 AM on Monday, August 18th at East High School in room 133.

·         -- The school has been divided into three zones: A, B & C.  The  zones represent the level of smoke damage, with the areas nearest the gym most  affected. A schedule is being created to bring teachers in to assess their  classrooms.

·         -- Parents who need to drop off paperwork for Preble should bring it to the  District Office Building (DOB) located at 200 S. Broadway. Parents should check  in at the front desk where they will be directed to Preble clerical and pupil  services staff.

·         --  Students who have recently moved to the Preble attendance area should  register at central registration located at DOB.

·         -- Preble’s Freshmen Forward has been postponed.

·         -- If parents or students have any questions they should call Preble at  920-391-2400. The phones are being forwarded to DOB. At this time only  restoration staff and designated district personnel are allowed in the building.

·         -- The District appreciates the many offers to assist with clean up.  Unfortunately, the restoration company is unable to have volunteers in the  building at this time.
