A small brush fire in Alsip near the 3800 block of W. 124th st. caused the power outage we had during 3rd period on Tuesday.

 

According to the Alsip Fire Department, the fire was caused by wind and dry air. The fire was close to power lines which was the cause of the power outage.

 

All the schools in District 218 and homes in the area were affected by the outage.

 

Students didn’t take long to figure what the cause of the outage was.

 

Sophomore, Mohamad Jabarah said “as soon as the power went out, I turned on the flashlight on my phone and went on Snapchat, and saw someone taking a video of a fire close by.”

 

Students like sophomore Fabian Garcia saw black smoke not too far away from outside the lunchroom.

 

Not only were some students worried but they were also disappointed that we were sent to the bleachers instead of being sent home early.

 

Sophomore, Hector Sandoval said “I was excited because I thought they would send us home early, but they ended up just sending us outside for a few minutes until the power went back on.”

 

Other students like Dolapo Ogunleye weren’t too disappointed with not leaving early.

 

“I was upset that we didn’t get to leave early at first because I didn’t want to take a test in my 8th period class, but then I saw the new schedule and I didn’t mind it because we didn’t have to go at all.”

 

The power was turned back on within an hour and a half and students proceeded the day with a new schedule.
