PEMBERVILLE, OH (Toledo News Now) -

It's been almost one month since a fire destroyed the Eastwood Schools' administration building and maintenance garage. On Monday, painters put the finishing touches on a temporary home for school officials.

The Dowling building was built in 1954. It's been vacant for the past five years, but now the school administration offices will temporarily be moved to the building.

The district's transportation staff will remain on the main campus. The vocational agriculture classroom at the high school will be used for bus maintenance around student schedules.

"It's important for our transportation staff to be on campus, just because the drivers are coming in there twice a day, just to exchange information and, you know, changes in routes," said Eastwood Superintendent Brent Welker. "It's a far more convenient thing for them to work out of that building."

No final decisions have been made about how long these temporary arrangements will last.
