Crews to demolish Woodson High School building damaged by fire

Crews are planning to demolish a building on the campus of W.T. Woodson High School that was engulfed by flames earlier this year.

An hours-long fire consumed an administrative building facing Main Street in the early morning hours of Jan. 30. Part of the roof and an external wall collapsed, WTOP previously reported.

A spokesperson for Fairfax County Public Schools said the damage was “beyond repair” during the fire.

There is no word yet on what’s in store for the site once it is demolished. It’s unclear when demolition will begin, although county permits were processed in March.

“Plans will be submitted if there is to be a rebuild,” FCPS spokesperson Julie Moult wrote in a statement.

Fire investigators did not conclusively determine what caused the fire, which was accidental in nature and started in an office. The fire caused roughly $8.8 million in damages.

The building was used for ground maintenance and operations support, a locksmith, stock room, offices, a break room, and storage.
