AIKEN, S.C.--The fire department was called to Silver Bluff High School tonight. News 12 is told the concession stand caught on fire.

A News 12 staffer says flames on a grill got too high and someone tried to put them out with water. The flames jumped to the building and did quite a bit of damage to the inside.

    I agree with these two persons, nobody knows the truth but the individuals who were actually there at the scene. You can give somebody an inch but they would take a mile and twist everything up. People need to leave well enough alone and quit twisting up stories, thats how the rumor mills get started!!!

    So much for accurate reporting. My wife and I run the concession stand for the Silver Spirit Band. My wife was inside the concession stand when the fire started. 1) We don't use a grill inside the concession stand, it's outside. 2) The deep fryer (inside) is what started the fire. Personnel working the fryers are experienced. By the time fire extinguishers were used (by a policeman) the fire was beyond the inceipent stage and personnel left the building. That's the correct response, get out. From all the comments I've heard, I don't guess anyone from the news stations felt they needed to talk to anyone that was inside the concession stand, so they just made up their on story. You may find out that fact makes better reading than your fiction.

    This is an inaccurate account. I was inside at the time of the fire and no one threw water on the fire. We used a fire extenguisher and when it hit the fire it expolded. A cop ran in and used a second one on the fire and this caused the fire to run up the wall. Please get your facts straight. No one used water on this grease fire.
