Sanborn Regional High School restroom arson tab is $400,000
"The damage that was caused was significant and carries a big price tag and the implications are far-reaching," Superintendent Brian Blake said Tuesday.
It's also too early to know how last Thursday's fire will affect the school district's insurance rates.
A 15-year-old male student is facing arson charges after police said he intentionally set the fire in a boys' restroom on the second floor of the high school, which was built in 2006.
An insurance adjuster surveyed the damage Thursday. Professional cleaning crews and other contractors were hired to immediately begin their work.
Air scrubbers and deodorizer machines were brought in; the school's HVAC system had to be cleaned because of the smoke. Work also included cleaning walls, furniture and other surfaces. Hundreds of ceiling tiles also had to be replaced.
Given the scope of the work and the extent of the damage, Blake said he wasn't surprised by the $400,000 estimate.
"When looking at the manpower that was used from Thursday night right through Sunday night to get it done, there's a significant cost involved," Blake said.
"It's an awful lot of money. You build them a $30 million high school and then you've got hundreds of thousands in damage," Kingston Selectman Mark Heitz said.
