Post from St. Michael's Facebook Page

"Thank You, God, that everyone is all right! There was a fire in a bathroom of the CCD house (the one next to our old office) this evening during CCD classes. Deano Smalley and the teachers did a great job evacuating the building. The teacher and 2 students from the closest classroom and Deano were checked out by the EMTs. Thank you to the HFD, EMTs, and HPD for being there for our parish family! God bless you!"
