Fire heavily damaged Winnsboro ISD’s Administration Building that broke out late Sunday night. Fire Chief Tommy Carden said 13 departments, 25 fire apparatus, and 71 personnel responded to the blaze. Officials say firefighter David Carr of Ogburn suffered a heart attack, and they transported him to an area hospital.
Fire officials have determined the cause of Sunday night’s fire at the WISD Administration building was electrical.
We are still assessing today’s damages as all Administration Offices will temporarily move to the Winnsboro Memorial Intermediate Campus.
Thank you again to all of the first responders, volunteers, and community members for their service to WISD and their tireless efforts during the fire last night.
