FRENCHVILLE — A fire has destroyed Dr. Levesque Elementary School.
According to a neighbor of the elementary school, a fire broke out at about 7 a.m. Sunday morning. She said local authorities fought the flames and ultimately failed to keep it from spreading throughout the entire building.
A neighbor of the school recorded the fire on Facebook and told us the loss of the school was a very painful one for local community members.
“It’s a big loss, this has been in our town for decades. To think we were getting back to a normal life with school since COVID. Our kids have already been through a lot with COVID. Now, the kids have lost their school, so there is uncertainty in the air,” said Cindy Nadeu, a Frenchville resident.
We could not reach officials regarding the cause of the fire or any injuries.
