Police: Student Set Himself on Fire in School Cafeteria
« on: January 27, 2014, 09:14:12 PM »
A fire inside Standley Lake High School in Westminster has injured two people and classes are canceled for the day.

Police confirm a student set himself on fire in the cafeteria. Westminster police said they believe the student was trying to take his own life. He is listed in critical condition.

The other person who was injured works at the school and suffered minor injuries putting out the fire, according to KKTV sister station KCNC.

The school was evacuated after the fire broke out at approximately 7:30 a.m. Police said students can not return to school today for any left belongings.

Students with cars were given the okay to leave the school in their cars and students who take the bus and get to the school by other means were being taken to Wayne Carle Middle School where they could meet up with parents or guardians.

Th district says classes are also canceled tomorrow, but counselors will be on hand.

Jeez!! The meatloaf was really that bad?

Yeah - horrible, I know. Couldn't resist.

Every time I start to feel boring, I remember there is a monthly magazine devoted to elevators.

No meatloaf allowed. Under the Mooch's lunch rules, the poor child was being force fed a kale and jicama salad, and he just snapped.  **nononono*
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
