School officials arrived on scene and were able to assists the Fire Department in determining what equipment and supplies were inside at the time of the fire. "Extensive fire and smoke damages were present throughout the building", Wadley said. Fire damage estimates from this fire are at $100,000.

Preliminary investigation into the cause of this fire is undetermined. Further investigation will be done by the Guymon Public School Police and other school officials. Firefighters remained on the scene till 12:40am assuring no further fire spread was present. No injuries occurred or reported at the scene.
