Fire destroys building housing middle school's orchestra instruments

Fire destroys middle school's orchestra instruments

Workman Middle School is picking up the pieces after a fire destroyed many of their orchestra instruments.

They believe lightning struck one of their portable buildings early Saturday morning.

A parent told Channel 3 the bolt hit the portable that housed their orchestra equipment. They lost dozens of instruments, including cellos and basses, along with 34 years of sheet music.

It was not during school hours and no one was injured.
