A plaster ceiling on the third floor of the east wing of Portland High School co
A plaster ceiling on the third floor of the east wing of Portland High School collapsed yesterday, breaking a 3-inch water main that poured out about 300 gallons a minute. The falling plaster also caused a suspended ceiling to collapse into the art room below. It took firemen about seven minutes to turn off the water main after an alarm sounded at 2:25 P.M. Despite the water damage, the school is expected to open on September 2 as planned.
