Transformers cause fire at Grammar School


School had to be dismissed early for students attending the Antigua Grammar School after a panel caught fire on top of the building.

The principal of the school, Sam Roberts tells ZDK that the main electrical panel to the school caught fire and knocked out power to the entire institution.

Electricity from the lamp pole reportedly backed up to the school’s circuits, causing a power outage.
