Poor New Rochelle High school. As if a devastating fire in 1968 wasn’t bad enough, the old girl suffered another indignity as lightning struck one of its towers about 6pm on Friday. The strike arrupted a blaze that basically destroyed the conical roof, but luckily it was a localized event, and should be fully repairable.
A few more photos of this and the 1968 fire can be found on flickr.
Thanks to our man in the field, John Elwood, for calling this in.
