Green Valley School of Cordelia was very successful due in part to the large population of the area.

Blaze causes $100,000 in damages on May 21, 2003 Vacaville Reporter Click
A fire that burned the old Green Valley School Wednesday afternoon may have been accidental, Cordelia fire officials said, but was definitely "caused by a human."

The 11 a.m. blaze, which began inside the more than 100-year-old schoolhouse on Ritchie Road and erupted through the attic, caused an estimated $100,000 in damages, Assistant Fire Chief Aaron McAlister said.

The fire ripped through the one-room structure, reportedly built in 1883 and closed in 1926, but was quickly knocked down. The building had been vacant for some time, McAlister said.

The only casualty was a cat, who died in the fire.
