Fire at Waldorf school in Alpujarras

many people will now have heard about the recent fire that caused extensive damage to the Waldorf school in the Alpujarras. One of the yurts (log cabins) that served as the classroom for the third and fourth class but also as a multi-purpose room, meeting facility and for eurythmy was completely destroyed. Additionally, it was used to store most of the material from the school so they lost wool, cotton, crochet hooks, books and furniture. There was nobody on site when the fire started so fortunately no-one was injured.
