On Feb.27, the Ventura City Fire Department responded to a report of smoke inside a classroom at Ventura High School. When Firefighters arrived on scene, they discovered a smoldering fire on top of a teacher’s desk. The fire appeared to have burned itself out after burning through the desk and consuming most of the materials on top. The fire did not extend past the desk; however, there was significant smoke damage to the involved classroom and minor smoke damage to a couple of adjoining classrooms. After firefighters ventilated the remaining smoke from the room, the building was turned back over to Ventura Unified School officials for repair.
