"I don't think in a hundred years anyone would think it would turn out like this," he said.
Spencer was back at school Friday. Three Mile Principal Janet Coombs said the school called the Box Elder School District's crisis team Thursday night. Friday, the school administration met with teachers to let them know crisis help was available for any teacher or student who was having trouble dealing the tragedy.
Coombs said the goal was to have as normal of a day as possible Friday, though the school was "very, very much aware" of what had happened.
"They're good boys, fun boys. Our thoughts are with them and their parents," she said.
After the boys were burned, they were taken to Brigham City Hospital. Four of the boys were then transferred by medical helicopters to University Hospital in Salt Lake City.
