08/15/2018 10:07am

The Superintendent of Plainfield Schools is searching for a new school for more than 300 fourth-grade and fifth-grade students after a fire damaged a school late Tuesday night.Firefighters said they were called to The Plainfield Memorial School on Canterbury Road shortly before midnight after getting a report of an activated fire alarm. Twitter Suspends Infowars Founder Alex Jones for 1 Week When firefighters arrived, they determined there was an active fire in the building and additional fire departments, including Moosup, Central Village, Atwood Hose, Danielson and South Killingly were called in to help fight it.The fire was located in several administrative rooms on the second floor of the school, firefighters said. It took about an hour to get the fire under control. A significant amount of smoke was also ventilated from the building. Defiant as Trump Rages, Omarosa Says She Won't Be Silenced "The heat was so intense in the location of where it was that it burned through one of the water mains so most of the damage we're seeing is water on the second level and the first level in the rear midsection of the building. And that seeps across the cafeterias, into some of the classrooms. It'll be a lot of recovery including a 20-foot hole in the ceiling," said Plainfield Schools Superintendent Kenneth DiPietro.DiPietro guesses there's between $500,000 to $1 million worth of damage to around 12 to 15 rooms including the cafeteria and library at the school.  He said the insurance company will need to come assess the damage. Turkey Ups Tariffs on Some US Goods in Spat Over Pastor DiPietro believes it could take months before the school is recovered and cleaned up enough to allow students to be safe inside again. One of his main concerns is mold and smoke inhalation. "Three hundred and fifty, 360 students need a place to be housed where they can be safe and educated," he said. School is still scheduled to begin on August 29.The school system is working to find a building that can accomodate students for the start of the new school year. DiPietro said the students cannot be put into the neighboring Plainfield Central School because it cannot hold that many kids.Staff and students will be notified through the school messenger system that sends out calls. There will also be a number for parents to call to have questions answered.The Plainfield Fire Marshal's Office and the Plainfield Police are working with Connecticut State Police Fire & Explosion Investigation Unit to determine the cause and origin of the fire.Photo Credit: NBC Connecticut

Stefanowski Beats Out Large Field for GOP Nomination for Gov
08/15/2018 5:46am

Bob Stefanowski is the projected GOP nominee for Connecticut governor over a large field of opponents.The Madison resident has run an unconventional campaign in the land of steady habits. He bypassed participating in the party’s nominating convention back in May, has been running television ads since the start of the year, and is funding his campaign through private donations and with his own money as opposed to applying for the Citizens Election Program. Jahana Hayes Defeats Mary Glassman in 5th District Race "So I think it’s fair to say this campaigns been underestimated from the start," Stefanowski said at a victory speech Tuesday night. "I don’t think anybody really thought we’d be standing up here right now. But we proved them wrong and we’re going to prove them wrong when we beat Ned Lamont in November."Endorsed Republican, Danbury’s Mayor Mark Boughton, as well as former hedge fund manager David Stemerman, former Trumbull First Selectman Tim Herbst, and tech entrepreneur Steve Obsitnik all conceded to Stefanowski Tuesday night. Lamont Wins Democratic Primary for Connecticut Governor Stefanowski described his competitors as "tough" and "terrific guys" to go up against.“I look forward to reaching out to them over the next couple days and getting their views on how to beat the Democrats this fall," he said. Decision 2018 CT Primary: Key Races to Watch Stefanowski said the state needs tax relief, and he has the boldest effort in the field of Republicans looking to become governor. He said he can scale back the income tax over the next eight years, ending with a phase-out.“I learned that to save our state we have to defend core Republican values of smaller government with less interference in our lives, lower taxes, greater personal responsibility and the highest moral and ethical standards possible," Stefanowski said of his time so far on the campaign trail.Stefanowski will face Democratic candidate Ned Lamont in the November general election.For full primary night election results, click here.Photo Credit: NBC Connecticut
