A fire set at Peninsula High School early Wednesday damaged a portable building but did not impact classes. The blaze was reported about 3 a.m. and was contained to a single portable building, which houses eight classrooms. “The campus is safe and secure, this is just a minor inconvenience today,” Principal Dave Goodwin wrote in a letter to parents. Investigators are working to determine how the fire started and who is responsible. Crews were clearing smoke from the building and repairing the doors, which were broken by firefighters as they doused the flames.
