CAMP HILL, Ala. (WSFA) - State investigators have arrived on the scene of a vacant school fire in Camp Hill that claimed one life on Friday and now have the arduous task of determining what started the blaze.
The old Camp Hill High School burned to the ground Friday afternoon, claiming one life in the process. At this point, investigators say they don’t know what sparked the fire.
“He was located behind the building, outside the building. So he had made it outside,” said Dadeville and Stillwaters Fire Chief Anthony Keith Wilkerson.
The most difficult part of fighting the fire, according to Wilkerson, was just getting to it. The building was surrounded by vegetation and old power lines in front of the building kept trucks from getting closer.
