The Columbia Gas outage in the south end of the city of Zanesville has forced the closing of three area schools. Administrators says classes are cancelled for Zane Grey Elementary and Intermediate and the Zanesville Community High School. Those buildings do not have power due the current natural gas outage. All other schools in the Zanesville City School district are on a normal schedule.
There is another closing to report — Careytown Preschool is closed Friday.
