Columbia Head Start officials are searching today for a new home for 20 students displaced after a fire caused an estimated $50,000 worth of damage to the Head Start preschool on Worley Street. The fire broke out Sunday evening around 6.

Assistant Fire Marshal Tim Bach said the cause of the fire was in the electrical disconnect to the air conditioner. When crews arrived on the scene, fire was coming out of the building. Crews found a fire in the basement that extended to the attic through a wall.
