Fire Marshal's Office didn't condemn school's historic stage

CLAREMONT — The state Fire Marshal's Office has not ordered the demolition of the Steven's High School theatrical stage.

"There's no order from our office to tear down the existing stage," said Matthew Labonte, supervisor for the Bureau of Building Safety and Construction on Tuesday.

Demolition of the stage is part of the planned $12.6 million renovation of the high school. The N.H. Fire Marshal's Office has reviewed and approved those renovation plans, Labonte said, however, they did not include the stage.

Last week Stevens High School students asked Claremont School Board members to preserve the high school's historic auditorium stage.

Members of the Stevens High School Renovation Committee said they would ask the project architects to research possibilities to preserve the current stage by first appealing to the New Hampshire State Fire Marshal's Office, which would have to review the fire safety and ADA accessibility of the current stage.
