Hoven, SD (KELO AM) - The small town of Hoven, SD is dealing with the loss of their school.
The building was destroyed by fire Sunday. The fire began around 1 a.m. Sunday and burned for several hours as fire crews from surrounding communities fought to control the flames. The cause of the fire is under investigation, damage to the building is so extensive that the state fire marshall can't enter it at this time.
Superintendent Peggy Peterson says the school board will meet later this week to go over what lies ahead for about 55 junior high and high school students that attended Hoven, a town of about 400 residents.
A memorial fund has been established for the community. Donations may be sent to P.O Box 404, Hoven, SD 57450.
