The girls's bathroom has two tabels in front of the door so that student's can't enter. There is a sign on the door that says "Out of Order"

Bathroom Fire at W.F. West High School!

At about 1:45 students were walking from 5th period classes to 6th period classes, we came
to the hallway with the bathrooms and the commons, near the office. We could smell smoke but couldn't see it. Then one of the girls that was in there opened the door screaming and running out. Smoke started pouring out of the bathroom and the smell was unbearable. I was a little worried because people were just standing there and laughing. Some school teachers came outof the office to start evacuations. The fire extiningusher out of the case and runs in. Then the fire alarm goes off and everyone works their way
outside. About 3 minutes later, several fire trucks and police cars arrive. We had to wait outside for about 45 minutes until we were allowed back in. There was only about 10 minutes left of class so we were disappointed to go back to class for such a short time. The principle came on the loudspeaker and told us that there was a small fire in the girls' bathroom and thanked us for our patience. The smell of smoke is still in the school and the investigation is with the fire department.

It happened to be pouring down rain that day, so all the students outside weren't having to great of a time.

Update: A group of 3 girls were smoking pot in the bathroom and threw away the hot joints in the garbage can. Obviously, the can caught fire.
