Hays schools without power after transformer catches fire


A handful of schools in the Hays district are without power after a transformer on pole located outside a kindergarten wing at Kyle Elementary caught blew out and caught fire.

There were no injuries and the kindergarten students at Kyle Elementary were relocated to another part of the campus. The Kyle fire department extinguished the fire.

Tobias and Negley elementaries, Wallace Middle School and the special education offices near Kyle Elementary also are without power due to the transformer outage and repair.

Students will be served sandwiches or other ready meals if the power is not restored before lunch.

“Hopefully we’ll have everything back and running soon,” said Tim Savoy, district spokesman, who estimated power could be back on within an hour.
