Last week, directly in front of the entrance of Somerset, a garbage truck had a minor fire.

The fire lasted for about 20 to 30 minutes before being put out by the fire department.

Due to the fire, the traffic on Boynton Beach Blvd. was slowed heavily. As stated by Mr. Groezinger, “Unfortunately for traffic flow, it could not have happened at a worse place or time. However, fortunately, Fire Rescue responded quickly and there was never any danger to our student[s] or traffic.”

The school left the cafeteria open for extra time to not count students who were late by the fire tardy.
