A fire was reported on Friday evening.
At 6:20 p.m. on Friday night, a port-o-potty was reported to be on fire at the 8th Grade Center. The exact location of the blazing portable toilet was at Coach McNelly Stadium at the 9th Grade Center. The fire was extinguished by 6:40 p.m., but the Spring-Ford Area School District has completely lost one port-o-potty through the incident. Upper Providence Police and Royersford Fire Department were on scene to handle the situation. Two kids, appearing to be teenagers, called the incident in to emergency services and even tried to extinguish the fire themselves. They stuck around to chat with responders and tell them what they knew, which wasn't much. There are currently no leads in the investigation.
